Powerful Voices Together: Making it Happen in Dumfries and Galloway is a group who want to see positive change across the region. We work together to challenge negative attitudes and create a more inclusive society. We discuss and take action on issues of concern to us. We bring issues to the attention of people who have the power to bring about positive change.
