Our Voice NYC

#OurVoiceNYC is a youth-driven movement amplifying the vision, voices, and actions of young people to create a just and healthier NYC. Youth have the power to make change happen. The most recent movement was the #SodaKills Project, where teens took to the streets of New York to counter the marketing tactics of sugary drink companies that target communities and shorten lives.

Why #SodaKills

  • Soda companies spend over $2 billion a year in ads to get you to buy soda.
  • One sugary drink per day increases a child’s obesity risk 60%.
  • Black children are exposed to 90% more sugary drink ads than White youth.
  • Over 50% of Latino kids born today are predicted to develop diabetes.
