Storysharing for Culture & Policy Shift

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Advocacy messaging can be muddled with talking points and statistics, and doesn’t always create space for the lived experiences of those most affected by the issue at hand. We can change that through story-sharing. By sharing our personal stories we can and do shift culture. We will hear from panelists who have used their stories for advocacy and change. Participants will learn how to identify issues within their own lives, how to frame their stories, and how to support others who want to speak out.
