"I'm really excited about being part of the SPEAK community and being able to support you guys in all the exciting and inspiring work you're doing. SPEAK brings together all the key things that I'm passionate about - my faith, campaigning, grass roots, creativity and global justice issues. It's really nice to be able to bring these areas together in such a way that they can enhance and empower each other. It sounds like SPEAK has another exciting year ahead of it, with the launch of our new 'Seeding Change' campaign, and I'm looking forward to being a part of such a powerful, dynamic force for good."
