In 2015, we gathered over a novel idea: throw a fancy "fundraiser" to raise awareness instead of money. Thus was born the first "Storytelling Gala." Listen for a Change has since grown into a 501(c)(3) for communities looking to connect to social issues through the art of storytelling. Our mission is to:
- GIVE ACCESS: Storytelling galas are free and open to the public. Pay-as-you-wish donations go to organizations of each storytellers’ choosing.
- GIVE VOICE: Storytellers represent voices often unheard. Storyhours are safe spaces where storytellers and attendees connect, heal, and share.
- GIVE AWARENESS: We listen to powerful stories and promise to advocate for these issues by standing up to hate, ignorance, and misinformation.
No PowerPoints. No scripts. Just storytelling on a mission.
