#ShakeTheSystem: A Decade of Shaping Change It’s 2020 and we’re celebrating 10 years of Voices that Shake! with an anthology, toolkits, workshops, showcases and more.

From our family, our friends, to people in youth work, education, youth policy, funders, arts/culture, community and social movements - we have made an impact.
