Families Leading the Way: Stories of Leadership, Advocacy and Strength
The National Center for Families Learning in the U.S. will produce and distribute stories told by low-income, diverse families describing their remarkable achievements leading projects that address local challenges. Low-income families are often mischaracterized by false narratives. By building trust with families and creating a safe space for them to openly and productively share their personal experiences overcoming barriers and driving change with larger audiences via local open mic events, they hope to change such narratives. These inspirational stories will be coupled with interviews to produce a series of podcast episodes for distribution.
