Each year, Blog Action Day brings voices from all over the world together simultaneously to share stories and ideas about important themes.
This year on October 16, 2015 our theme is RAISE YOUR VOICE.
We all have the power to create the world we want to see when we raise our voices online.
However, for many of our fellow bloggers, citizen journalists and writers, each post they share comes at great personal risk.
2015 has seen unprecedented attacks on those who publish their ideas online. This Blog Action Day we celebrate those heroes who raise their voice when faced with censorship, threats, and violence.
We will raise our voices to defend their right to raise theirs.
On October 16, we invite you to speak out with others around the world, as we support those who cannot do so safely.
To showcase the power of our words, images, designs, videos and creativity by sharing our posts, and supporting partner organizations who all aim to protect and celebrate our blogging heroes and their ideas. Join us, by being part of the global conversation on your own blog this Blog Action Day.
