Love is Louder was started by actress Brittany Snow, The Jed Foundation and MTV to build on the outpouring of support online after the lives of multiple teenagers were lost to suicide in September 2010. This movement strives to amplify the momentum of other inspiring online campaigns and invite anyone who has felt mistreated, misunderstood or isolated into the conversation. We are here to raise the volume around a critical message -- that love and support is more powerful than the external and internal voices that bring us down, cause us pain and make us feel hopeless.
The more voices that join the movement, the louder the message becomes. #LoveisLouder.
Anyone can raise the volume on the Love is Louder movement by joining in the conversation on Facebook and Twitter*, or by uploading a brief video (30 seconds or less) at http://your.mtv.com – telling the world what they believe love is louder than. Make sure to tag your video with loveislouder.
You can uploade your #loveislouder photos to our Facebook photo gallery.
