Voice: A Starting Point Not The Destination

Over the past year I have seen many advocates for education and social change focus on their voice being heard in national, state and local conversations. Once they have the opportunity to voice their opinion, share their insights and recommend strategies they feel successful, as their voice has been heard.

This is a great first step rather than final step in advocacy. Yes, we need to share our voice in critical conversations, but rather than stop there we need to start there. Advocacy is not just about having a voice in the conversation but changing the conversation to focus on the desired impacts and establish the most effective strategies to achieve them.
