What are Own Voices? The movement often referred to as #ownvoices emphasizes reading and engaging with content featuring characters from a marginalized group.
By seeking out authentic stories from authentic voices, we encourage and support diversity in the world of media and we gain better understanding of marginalized groups.
There's no better way to find commonality with someone than to walk a while in their shoes. Take a journey with us this spring into a world of #ownvoices!
