Welcome to the Official Blog of Voices of The People
A new initiative out of the Office of Diversity Initiatives, Voices of the People, seeks to connect voices from our collective past to our collective present and future. Based off of the work of the late Howard Zinn, author ofA People’s History of the United States, VOTP gives voice to the often silenced and marginalized voices throughout history, be it major historical events or movements. We believe that understanding our past in a holistic way is integral to continuing to understand the present and future. We believe in the power of storytelling and thereby highlighting the power of one’s voices to accomplish our mission.
