Audi founded the We Have Voices reading series to provide a platform on which Black creative writers from the Central Florida community can perform. This 501(c)(3) nonprofit directs funds from its supporters to Black-focused initiatives, organizations, and businesses. The first reading, WE HAVE NAMES: Reclaiming Black Bodies, was held in remembrance of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor and raised over $400.
