Give the Gift of Voice

Dear tribe,

Thank you for helping us change the demographics of voice. Like you, we believe the world becomes more intelligent when it’s more inclusive. In the 7 years of our existence, we have shared knowledge with you across color, creed, class, sexuality, affiliation and of course, gender. You have joined us in programs to explore what we know, what we will take a stand for, and what we will do with our “one, wild precious life” (to quote the poet Mary Oliver). And we have moved the dial.

Today, as we enter our 8th Screen Shot 2015-11-30 at 7.50.32 PMyear, women’s ideas are far more visible in the nation’s most influential opinion forums. We have driven, together with you, thousands of new voices into public discourse, reaching hundreds of millions of new readers, viewers, and listeners. But as you know, this is not the end of the race. We can solve this problem, but not without you. Help us be the change we want to see in the world.

With gratitude,

Your friends at The OpEd Project
