About VOICEs

The VOICE Project strives to reclaim the voice of East Lubbock residents through outreach and inspiring stories that change and empower the community. Our goal is to provide residents with a platform where they can share authentic stories of faith, hope and service.

In addition to our multi-media campaign that includes billboards throughout the community, videos airing on our local PBS station, and blogs, photos and videos on our website at elpngrant.org, activities are scheduled throughout the year that will empower and educate community members to become advocates for their own families and their community.

For more information, visit our webpage, like us on Facebook, or contact VOICE Project Director Dr. Amanda Banks at Amanda.banks@ttu.edu.
