Campaign Offers Children A Voice
Calling attention to the thoughts, hopes and fears of children, a new billboard campaign in Pittsburgh was launched last week. The campaign, part of the Hear Me project, aims to make children aware of the project and its focus on providing children means of being heard.
Of the campaign, Hear Me Director Heide Waldbaum said, "We listen to what they're talking about. They do have a voice, and they're capable of producing newsworthy content, and we should be listening to them."
The project, part of Carnegie Mellon's CREAT Lab, has 3,000 children participating who have contributed their thoughts to the campaign's billboards, website and Facebook page.
