Help us in our mission of defending freedom of expression and supporting those who are persecuted and prosecuted for using their voices to creatively advocate for change. In the face of rising corporatist hegemony and increasingly authoritarian governments, defending freedom of expression for individuals is one of the great fights of our time. Advocacy works, pressure works, check out the "Our Work" tab to see what we've accomplished so far with tiny budgets. Please consider a small donation to The Voice Project.

Art changes people, and people change the world.

“The support we received from The Voice Project was a miracle. It’s incredible to sit behind bars and know that there are hundreds and thousands of people who care, and I ask you to continue to care about those who are in harm’s way. Thank you everyone and thank you Voice Project.”
