Columbus Speaks is a call to action in response to the discrimination experienced by minority communities across our city, state, and nation. We want to bring together our community to continue to unite and lift up the silenced voices in our society. We support human lives; children, elderly, male, female, nonbinary, transgender, LGBTQ, cisgender. We are aware of the privilege that we have and we want to use our platform to support human rights. We practice empathy to help others learn, grow, and connect in this beautiful city of Columbus. We want to be able to facilitate conversation that sparks change, spreads positivity, and invokes courage. Columbus Speaks wants to bring ideas into reality through meaningful community engagement. This is a platform of advocacy and engagement for those voices unheard.
