Eliminating racism is a monumental task.
We believe it starts with stories.
Join us on Saturday April 24 ON ZOOM for the final event of the RACE STORIES project where you’ll hear wondrous, quirky, open-hearted, righteous, poignant, transformational STORIES told by a group of storytellers who have participated in a storytelling workshop centered in anti-racism work.

“We The People:
True Stories About Race”
A night of true, personal narrative stories
centered around the theme of RACE
told from the heart
and from living rooms across the country.
When we can look at our own stories with honesty and courage, and listen to one another’s stories with curiosity and heart, we have a much better shot at taking meaningful action towards creating a just and equitable world. That’s what we’ve been doing in this 8-week storytelling workshop — digging for and sharing true, personal narrative stories about how race has played a part in our lives.
Co-led by Johanna Walker, speaker, training and host of Boulder’s Story Slam, and Darryl Piggott, LA based educator, with a mixed race group of storytellers from across the US.
Meet the Storytellers:
