Athletes Unlimited’s “Power in My Voice” is an initiative that everyone can have an impact by using their voice. Whether it is through voting, speaking up for a cause, standing up for your teammates and peers, or helping out in your community, every voice is powerful.
In 2020, Athletes Unlimited forged partnerships with Rally The Vote, When We All Vote and More Than A Vote. By the end of the year, Athletes Unlimited announced that 98% of our softball players and 100% of our volleyball players had registered to cast their vote in the 2020 election. In 2022, we worked with VOTE.org and dove deeper into voter engagement work in Texas with the help of the Texas Working Group.
There is power in my voice,
When I use it…
To speak up for a cause.
To encourage the person next to me.
To help us hear the voiceless.
To represent my people.
To shine a light on the truth.
To show others what is possible.
To change the course of history.
To remind you of the power in yours.
There is power in your voice,
But only when you use it.
Shop books chosen by our athletes
In partnership with Bookshop.org and as a part of the Power in My Voice initiative, athletes of each league have curated book lists to amplify authors, stories, and topics that are important to them. Athletes Unlimited has created a bookshop in each venue of our leagues supporting the voices of our athletes and uplifting local bookstores of the venue’s respective city. We are excited to have these books here for you to buy online through Bookshop.org!
Enjoy the lists they’ve curated just for you here.
Our Women’s Wall
In the spirit of the Power in My Voice initiative, our athletes are choosing women who embody that power as civic leaders, blazed new trails, and used their voices on behalf of those who have been given the least space.
A staple inside of the arena this season is the women's wall. A part of @AUProSports's Power in My Voice campaign and to celebrate Women's History Month, the wall is a collection of civic leaders who inspire the athletes.
