This spring, we invite you to Stand Up for Storytelling!
Donate today to help us raise $25 000 to keep our peer storytelling programs going strong.
At Megaphone, we have seen firsthand how storytelling by people with lived experience of poverty and homelessness can change the story on poverty. When people tell their own stories, they humanize complex issues and challenge harmful stereotypes.
In 2021, Megaphone is creating a new avenue for storytellers to have their voices heard, through our Community Journalism Mentorship program. This program pairs peers with professional journalists for a six-month mentorship to support them as they write on assignment for Megaphone magazine.
