Stories for Good

We are helping inspire community action through storytelling because we know imagination is the key to change.

Imagination is the key to change. Imagination helps us envision the future, helps us determine what needs to change. That is why, with support from Blue Magnolia Films, we have re-imagined storytelling.

We hosted capacity-building workshops and taught community leaders a new method of storytelling that is empowering, moving, and community-focused. Using a documentary-style of storytelling, community leaders were able to produce narratives that resonated with their communities.

At the end of each workshop, their stories were shared using public dialogue, community initiatives, and events. We intend for this collection to inspire, engage, and reimagine community engagement and to show that we are better together.

Help us continue to inspire change and community engagement by sharing stories leading change on social media with hashtags #StoriesForGood or #StoriesLeadingChange.
