"This is a heartrending but vital work" - Publisher's Weekly

Amplifying Small Voices for Big Change

The team at Project Amplify is thrilled to announce

that on April 13, 2021, we released our new book, Hear My Voice / Escucha Mi Voz, compiled by Warren Binford, with a foreward by Michael Garcia Bochenek of Human Rights Watch. This illustrated book is a beautifully crafted mosaic of stories from children detained at the border in the full authenticity of their own words, along with the powerful artwork of 17 Latinx artists. This book offers an opportunity to better understand human migration and children's rights by compassionately introducing this difficult topic while providing an urgent call to action and simple steps to help. We know that our policymakers will only move forward with important changes to immigration policies if engaged citizens continue to demand action. 100% of the royalties go to Project Amplify, which is largely volunteer run. Paid positions are provided a living wage. We remain committed to amplifying the voices of children arriving in the U.S. until they are cared for in a manner befitting their dignity and human rights. Please order your copy today.

The Junior Library Guild rates this book as “Gold Standard,” their highest honor. The JLG has ordered over 800 copies to donate to children’s libraries and schools around the country. 

Publisher's Weekly awarded the book a coveted starred review calling it “hard-hitting, movingly illustrated” and say “the text unfolds simply but meaningfully—with the children’s own words, intertwined not as a single, broad narrative but in a harmonious array of voices, each with a unique story to tell.” Their conclusion is that “this is a heartrending but vital work.” 

Kirkus Review is calling Hear My Voice/Escucha Mi Voz, “A powerful, critical document only made more heartbreaking in picture-book form," and awarded the book a starred review.
