Love is Louder
Love is Louder was started by The Jed Foundation, MTV and Brittany Snow to support anyone feeling mistreated, misunderstood or alone. It’s hundreds of thousands of people just like you who have turned this idea into a movement. A movement of all types of people who have come together to raise the volume around the message that love and support are louder than any internal or external voice that brings us down.
Individuals, communities, schools and organizations have embraced Love is Louder as a way to address with issues like bullying, negative self-image, discrimination, loneliness and depression. Even as we work to stop negative words and actions that hurt us, we can strengthen our abilities to cope with hard times, focus on the positive, support the people around us and reach out for help if we need it.
The Love is Louder movement is all about taking action. Some actions are simple like reading positive messages that remind us we aren’t alone or uploading our photos or artwork. Other actions might involve your school or community — like using Action Kits to plan an event or to hold a fundraiser for Love is Louder and The Jed Foundation’s other programs. And some actions are very personal, like reaching out to a friend you know needs support or speaking up because you are having a hard time.
Follow us on Twitter, use the #loveislouder hashtag and tell your friends to follow @loveislouder.
