Powerfully kicking off Women's History Month
From the Director's Desk: On March 1st, over 80 people joined Amplify via Zoom to witness the six latest Speaker Circle graduates share their talks. It was a powerful evening; every survey respondent said she left feeling inspired, connected, uplifted, and/or having more understanding and compassion.
While the topic of sexual assault or trafficking that tied these women together can be hard to listen to, those who do have the courage to listen are finding the messages uplifting. As one respondent said, "The world needs more messages of thriving, empowerment and breakthrough. Amplify Voices delivers on all levels."
It is an exciting time for Amplify as we gain evidence of the impact of our Speaker Circles and look to begin programming in the area of Restorative Justice at the end of this month. In the beautiful words of Amanda Gorman: "There is always light, if only we're brave enough to see it. If only we're brave enough to be it."
Thank you to our latest Circle of speaker graduates and those who came before them for your courage to be the light. Here is to touching more people with the ripples of empowerment, transformation and compassion.
