Share Your Story

Through stories, we can support existing policy priorities and identify new areas where change is needed. Sharing a personal story can interrupt damaging rhetoric and break down existing stereotypes or false beliefs about how the world works. When permission is granted, we share stories submitted to us on social media, in publications, in meetings with lawmakers, and at public events. Wherever possible, we connect storytellers to opportunities to share their story in their own voice.

If there isn't a specific bill on the issue you care about or the legislature is not currently in session, you can still make a call. Let your lawmakers know what issue you'd like them to support or work on and why.
