Voice is a thinking process. It will invite you to dig deeply into your emotions, understand and name your values, and consider your opinions. Many people spend about 10-15 mins using Voice.

This process helps you gain the psychological perspective to take conscious action in service of your values and engage respectfully with those whose actions you may disagree with. You will receive a summary of your thinking at the end, which you can take with you.

Voice also offers you the opportunity to join your voice with others' in a message to the White House – describing your hope for America, with specific requests of the President-elect.

Your thinking will be made public, but will remain anonymous.

 
Take a minute to express yourself without restraint. What would you say if you were intensely honest and emotive? *

It's helpful to let your emotion flow. Often, we don't allow ourselves to find out what we really think and feel. The rest of this process will help you build a well-reasoned perspective based on the subconscious information (your emotions) you allow yourself to express here.
 
Please give a title to the issue you're focusing on:

Try: [Emotion] about [Issue]
 
What specific, objective facts are relevant to your tension? How would a scientist or unbiased journalist describe the situation? *

Take out all opinion. The first step to respect in conversation is to agree on facts. Facts take the form of events or actions, not assessment.

For example: Candidate A "is corrupt/racist/etc." is a judgement or opinion.
Candidate A "proposed Policy X" is the fact. Candidate B "said a certain statement" would also be a fact.
 
What does {{answer_36544277}} mean to you? *

 
What are your preferences about how your value of {{answer_36544277}} could be expressed in our society?

I would prefer... *

Our values trigger intense emotion when we hold beliefs as demands. By translating them to preferences, we allow ourselves the mental freedom to work in service of our values, rather than feel trapped by our emotions. How can you rephrase "should" beliefs as "prefer" beliefs? For example: "Women should(n't) have the right to have an abortion" → "I would prefer for women to (not) have the right to an abortion."  

Making this shift does not lessen your commitment to a cause; rather, it gives you the psychological space to listen to and respect others.
 
At this point, you have created a clear understanding of your experience:
     You've stated the facts at hand
     You've identified your emotion: {{answer_36544276}}
     You've identified a value being affected: {{answer_36544277}}
     You have translated your demands into preferences 

Now, we'll do something with it. There are two ways humans can respond to experience:
     1. By making commitments and taking action
     2. By making requests of others

You'll have an opportunity to do both here.
