Voice of the People

Every person in America has a unique life story, culture and background which shapes his or her thoughts, beliefs and actions. We believe that the passions of each individual impact our nation and every voice has a right to be heard — as it brings a new perspective in ways that we may have not previously considered. This section features writers who share their passions ranging from climate change to women’s rights to racial equality and every subject in between. This is democracy. This is the voice of the people — for the people, by the people.
