Say it Loud

It wasn’t long after lockdown started last spring before rainbows starting going up in our neighbours’ windows. With a humble piece of paper and some coloured pens, they said “We’re here too! We care too!” A truly Simple Act made us feel more hopeful, and less alone.

This Simple Act invites you to share a message of hope, unity or welcome somewhere the world can see. This printable ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’ poster is yours to colour and customise, or you might choose to draw/ paint/ craft/ crochet a message of your own!

Stick it in your window or on the walls of your school, workplace or a space used by your community. If you’d like to, take a photo and share on social media using #SimpleActs and #SayitLoud.

We look forward to seeing your creations!

If your social media post includes images or names of other people, make sure you get permission first, including from parents/ guardians of anyone under 18. We don’t recommend posting images from which your address could be identified.

Say it Loud is one of eight Simple Acts you can do for Refugee Week 2021. To view them all, visit the Simple Acts page.
