From Our Cofounder: Help Us #TakeBackTheStory This May

Dear Friends,

We live in a time when stereotypes and dehumanizing labels like “criminal” or “illegal alien” are having devastating consequences for communities across the country.

But in the face of injustice, the most marginalized among us are coming forward to say: Our voices will be heard.

Today we launch the Take Back the Story Campaign to support VOW’s oral history book series and ensure that crucial stories of injustice have a place in classrooms, bookstores, and media across the country, as well as in the corridors of power.

Throughout May you’ll be hearing from editors and narrators from our upcoming projects. We’ll introduce you to some of the inspiring people who are determined to change the story around immigration and racial injustice by sharing their own powerful, first person stories with Voice of Witness.

Make a gift to Voice of Witness today, and help create a world of informed, effective advocates for justice. Empower the most marginalized among us by putting them at the center of their own stories.
