Empowering Young Activists. Advancing LGBTQ Equality.

The Movement

In the past century, LGBTQ+ Americans have courageously and repeatedly overcome prejudice, discrimination, and fear. Despite the great strides we have made, the fight for equality is far from over. As the older, more experienced generation of change-makers continue to do historic and impactful work for the community, Shelly's Voice seeks to empower and educate the next generation of young activists. Through our national coalition of young activists, we can ensure this movement won't stop until we are all free and equal.

Our Mission

It is the Mission of Shelly's Voice to provide holistic programming, responsible advisement, and leading resources to a national network of young activists dedicated to the advancement of LGBTQ equality.



We encourage our young activists to be comprehensive in their programming and projects. By embracing our three pillars of activism (outreach, action, and education), we believe our young activists will accelerate acceptance like never before.

Three Pillars of Activism


We value the importance of adults teaching the next generation how to become responsible and powerful leaders. That's why each of our chapters incorporate skilled mentors to advise our young activists on their advocacy projects.

Become an Adviser


We are constantly expanding our partnerships with nationally-recognized organizations to give our young activists the best resources and connections to turn their visions into reality.

Preparing Our Future

Shelly's Voice commits itself to the belief that activism is crucial to a young person's life. Not only does activism give young people the opportunity to create a community of shared values, it also works for the betterment of our country. We believe the next generation needs to be included in the conversation and decide what their future will look like. Most importantly, Shelly's Voice gives hope to a community which still experiences a world full of prejudice, discrimination, and hate towards them.
