Jazz Moreton is an interdisciplinary artist who has multiple disabilities as a result of surviving a stroke as a teenager, and a passion for activism and equality. She strives to use her enthusiasm for the Arts to create work that has the power to ignite action and discourse around the many inequalities that people with disabilities endure on a daily basis. This International Stammering Awareness Day #ISAD2021 she blogs on why there is #NoDiversityWithoutDisfluency in the voices we hear in the media.
Sounddelivery Media is a new charity
We believe in a confident social sector able to develop and amplify lived experience stories and expertise to address social inequalities.
We want to see people in positions to use their lived experience of social injustice so they can influence change on that issue.
We work towards greater representation and diversity of the voices we hear in the media and beyond.
Our Spokesperson Network
Our programme creates a network of media savvy spokespeople, who have direct experience of social injustices. Developed collaboratively with a network of leaders with lived experience, it aims to diversify the voices we hear in the media and make it more representative of the society we live in. Through training, media mentoring, peer support and speaking opportunities, we tackle the barriers that prevent these experts from engaging with journalists who have the power to influence coverage and ultimately drive change.

I always come away with renewed passion, and the goal to keep going no matter how complex the issues I am trying to highlight."Amanda Hailes
