This webinar will feature a presentation by Bryan Mercer, Executive Director of The Media Mobilizing Project. Since its founding in 2005, MMP has used strategic media, arts and communications to intervene in critical human rights struggles from public education to healthcare, media reform and public services.
In the summer of 2014, the Media Mobilizing Project began reaching out to parents across Philadelphia in search of powerful untold stories. They were inspired by the enthusiasm of passionate parents, students, teachers, community organizations and community members as they shared their concerns, praises, and dreams for the city’s schools and young people.
Voices from Our Public Schools was created to amplify these stories and to invite others to contribute stories from public school communities across Philadelphia and beyond.
The Storytellers for Social Change webinar series includes deep-dive information and dialogue curated by Co-Learning for Action Project, with subject matter experts who focus on real life challenges and solutions to help you develop a more thorough understanding of the ways you can use storytelling in community-based, social change work.
Join us to learn the best tips, tools, and innovative approaches that different social justice leaders are using. If you want to inspire action and create social change one story at a time, this is for you.7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
