The Power of a Unified Message

In the spring of 2023, community partners in Knoxville, TN launched the first local My Voice. Our Community. campaign in an effort to raise awareness about the ways community members could get involved in reducing the violence around them. Spearheaded by the Mayor’s office, they used My Voice. Our Community. resources to create a unifying message that ties the city’s various violence reduction programs together and spreads awareness that everyone has a voice, every voice matters, and together our voices can make a difference.
