As Brittany explains in the vid, hundreds of thousands of people, orgs and schools have joined the Love Is Louder movement since it launched in 2010. In the video we get to see some of the individuals and groups involved, including the very first Love Is Louder club, which is at Towson University. We also learn more about Straight Up Love Is Louder, which was started by student allies at Trinity School in New York City to support LGBTQ rights.
Kara Whipkey, a resident of Newtown, talks in the video about how she paired with Love Is Louder. As you might recall, Love Is Louder got really involved after the shooting at Newtown, and it also gave support following Hurricane Sandy and the bombing at the Boston Marathon.
The vid also gives us a peek at some of the celebs who back Love Is Louder, including Michelle Williams (who speaks in the vid), Ke$ha, Demi Lovato and more. “At the end of the day, it’s love that got me through, and love is going to get you through,” Michelle says.
Ready to join the movement that says love is louder than hate, pain, and all the other negativity in the world? You can just jump right on over to the website and see what’s going on. By its fourth b-day, it’ll be even bigger and better!
