Empowering our Voices


Oregon Student Voice’s Empowering Our Voices Rally brings students and educators together to learn and confront systemic K-12 concerns using student voice. We support students in becoming innovative, resilient, and civic-minded individuals engaged in their schools and communities.


Participants attend a half-day training where they learn about topics ranging from the importance of student voice in decision making to how to advocate for K-12 reform at the state level. Participants then head to the Oregon State Capitol to show the power of student voice by meeting with legislators to discuss issues in their school.
