Speak Up Magazine is nonprofit based in Charlotte, NC. Their purpose is to give a voice to those without one, speak up for the voiceless and educate the public about the marginalized.They do this with a street magazine (Speak Up), via their website, grassroots advocacy, events, art and more. The magazine is largely distributed by homeless and formerly homeless people; it gives them a work opportunity and a chance to take control of their lives, which leads to dignity and hope. (SpeakUp site.) Tomorrow, SpeakUp is hosting a Connection Breakfast.

What is a Connection Breakfast?
This event gives us the opportunity to live out our mission. We focus each month's breakfast on individuals and/or businesses who are helping those in our community Speak Up.
