"I will make my voice heard and help young people’s views to get noticed. When I have an opinion on a news story, I will voice it in the media by commenting online, writing to editors of papers or magazines, or calling in to TV or radio programmes. It’s our news too. but only if 1,000 other young people will pledge to do the same."
— Sophie Manning, Respect young people's advisory member

This pledge is part of a new campaign to urge young people to take ownership of the media, and make their opinions heard, by using comment opportunities and new technology.
Respect? has teamed up with young people’s website TheSite.org, so visit www.TheSite.org/respect for tips and advice on how to make a splash in the media.
Launched on Fleet Street by former BBC broadcaster Martyn Lewis and young campaigners from the Respect? campaign group, the Respect? campaign is supported by online charity YouthNet and the British Youth Council.
