The lack of freedom of expression!
All over the world today, both in developing and developed states, liberal democracies and less free societies, there are groups who struggle to gain full access to freedom of expression for a wide range of reasons including poverty, discrimination and cultural pressures. While attention is often, rightly, focused on the damaging impact discrimination or poverty can have on people’s lives, the impact such problems have on free expression is less rarely addressed. We want to give people access to freedom of expression!
Why is access to freedom of expression important? Freedom of expression is a fundamental human right. It also underpins most other rights and allows them to flourish. The right to speak your mind freely on important issues in society, access information and hold the powers that be to account, plays a vital role in the healthy development process of any society.

We see an image, we are intrigued, and we form an impression. Images communicate messages and feelings. We believe in the profound and transformative power of visual imagery to provoke, question, and inspire action.
That is why we want a movement of people from all over the planet sharing their thoughts and making their voices heard through our platform. We want Read My Voice to be the bridge: the bridge between those who speak (write) and act, and those who listen (read) and join the action for positive change!
