In 2018, Charlayne Hunter-Gault and Ron Gault established a fund to help UGA students develop projects that “give voice to the voiceless.”

In 2018, Charlayne Hunter-Gault (ABJ ’63) and her husband, Ron Gault, established the Giving Voice to the Voiceless endowment to recognize and financially support compelling student projects that amplify marginalized voices, advance social justice and promote global understanding. With grants awarded from the fund, students from all disciplines across the University of Georgia can undertake projects that give voice to the voiceless by shedding light on unattended societal problems.

With a gift to the Giving Voice to the Voiceless Fund, you can help students engage in meaningful work in the world while they are students, sharing the voices they discover with others through experiential learning, a top academic priority of the University and the College.

YOUR IMPACT AT WORK

 Projects selected for a Giving Voice to the Voiceless grant, such as the “UGA Black Alumni Oral History Project” and “Undocumented, Unprotected, Unheard: Voices of Athens-Clarke County Immigrants,” illuminate the stories of underrepresented groups, enlarge empathy and understanding and advance the human good.

UGA Black Alumni Oral History Project

Black students who attended the University of Georgia during the 1960s and 1970s paved the way for the more diverse culture that exists on campus today, but their stories are not well known. Thanks to a grant from the Giving Voice to the Voiceless Fund, the ongoing Black Alumni Oral History Project seeks to collect stories from Black alumni, documenting their experiences at UGA and expanding an understanding of the Black experience on campus over the decades.

This project, led by a PhD candidate in the School of Social Work, studied domestic violence within South Asian immigrant communities, a growing population in the Athens area. With support from the Giving Voice to the Voiceless Fund, the student partnered with several South Asian community-based organizations in Athens, Atlanta and Chicago to develop interventions for immigrant women coping with domestic violence issues.

Undocumented, Unprotected, Unheard: Voices of Athens-Clarke County Immigrants

A 2019 grant winner led by a group of interdisciplinary students, this project worked to give voice to immigrant communities in Athens by campaigning against arbitrary imprisonment and deportation. With support from the Giving Voice to the Voiceless Fund, the group collected and transcribed interviews, designed brochures and created informative postcards for representatives and various legal bodies for the 2018-2019 political campaign.

A donation to the Giving Voice to the Voiceless Fund supports future projects to tell the stories of those that are not heard, the charting light of the life and work of Charlayne Hunter-Gault (ABJ ’63). Thank you for helping the students who are following Charlayne’s footsteps on campus and are pursuing meaningful work that will give voice to the voiceless!
