Narrative Change: Mission Forward 2018 Fall Gathering
On November 16, 2018, Mission Forward® hosted an educational Fall gathering called Narrative Change which included a community lunch conversation + program which centered stories of immigration and people’s lives in the United States.

We heard from local youth leaders, award-winning journalists and various members of the community who brought necessary perspectives to some of the most prominent social justice issues of our time.

Participants were challenged to listen beyond their own social circles to hear from people who are not often heard in the mainstream. They were also encouraged to converse with other participants to learn firsthand from people in the community.

“Making connections with strangers at a personal level. Talking allows us to find common ground. I am working on two grant opportunities around community dialogue. This conference will help to shape that work.” – Mission Forward: Narrative Change participant
