There are so many good causes to fight for, but every one of them needs someone to speak out so that others can join in and help. Our nominees have used Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, and other platforms to stand up for their beliefs, create awareness of important issues, and effect positive change in the world around them.
Millions of people participate in
