Watch a video introduction from Renaldo Hudson about the “Every Voice Matters” prompt.
Find a quiet space to gather with a small group, either in person or virtually.
Next, seek out three or more voices you would not otherwise have heard and ask them to engage in a group conversation. This could be anyone or include people from anywhere (your neighbor who you don’t always see eye-to-eye with, a family member who has different opinions than you, a group or population you have not devoted time to listening to, etc.).
As a group, reflect on the questions below.
- What does it mean to value all voices?
- What are some challenges involved in listening to all voices?
- Why is it important to support and consider voices you do not always hear or listen to?
- Reflect on experiences when your voice was heard/included. How did that impact your life/experience?
- Reflect on experiences when your voice was suppressed. How did that impact your life/experience?
- Reflect on a time when you uplifted or sought out the voice/perspective of another person. How did that impact you? How did that impact the other person?
- Reflect on a time where you ignored the voice of another. How did that impact you? How did it impact the other person?
At the end of your conversation, record a short reflection on your group’s discussion as a video or audio recording, recommended one to two minutes in length. Submit your recording using the submission form below.
