Raise Your Voice: A Cause Manifesto

Brian Sooy

Raise Your Voice: A Cause Manifesto is an inspirational and practical book exploring mission-driven design, marketing, engagement, and the touch points that connect your mission with your audience. It is a framework for understanding how your organization's purpose and identity represents your cause, and moves your organization beyond branding.

Called a "a must read for anyone, regardless of industry or sector," the principles of the Cause Manifesto will help you align how your organization communicates through its purpose, character, culture, and unique voice. These twelve strategic, inspirational, relational, and aspirational principles will empower you to communicate to the outcomes you are working to achieve, transform your culture, and empower you to share your story more powerfully and effectively.
