About Amplify


Amplify Voices serves individuals historically oppressed, misunderstood or silenced, who want to use their voice as an instrument of change.

Amplify’s programming helps its speakers discover their voice, develop compelling talks focused on the triumph over adverse experiences and finally, amplify their messages to the greater community to bring about more compassion and understanding.

Speaker Circles

Through participation in safe and supportive Speaker Circles, participants discover transformation through being seen and heard, finding empowerment, healing and deeper connection with others.

Amplify aims to create three participant-focused outcomes in its Speaker Circles: a safe space, connection with others, and a platform to deliver a message that leaves the participant feeling empowered and confident.

As a result, understanding and compassion will grow in the surrounding community as more and more speakers share their compelling and positive messages.
