No story left untold, no girl left behind: Our newest Voices and Faces Project writing program. We believe in girls: Their inherent power. Their unique purpose. Their ability to change the world. With that belief as our guide, The Voices and Faces Project is partnering with The Cook County Juvenile Detention Center and Rape Victim Advocates to bring "The Stories We Tell," our two day testimonial writing workshop for survivors of gender-based violence, to court-involved girls between the ages of 15-17.

This special writing program is a new iteration of our award-winning Voices and Faces Project workshop. Using spoken word, poetry, memoir and narrative, our workshop team will support court-involved girls as they "write a new story" about their histories, while reimagining their futures. We're not giving girls a voice. We're supporting them as they use the voices they already have.

Applications are required, and accepted applicants are given full, two-day scholarships. Email for details and share this email by clicking one of the icons below.

This month, Voices and Faces Project team members R. Clifton Spargo, Janet Goldblatt Holmes and Anne K. Ream spent five days with our neighbors to the north, bringing our "Stories We Tell" writing workshop and lectures series to the YWCA Toronto as part of Project Canada, a unique educational initiative funded by the Donner Canadian Foundation. Special thanks to Stephanie Hanson and our allies at DCF for their belief in our work – and their ongoing support of our expansion into Canada.
