The Storytelling Project

What is a Storytelling Project? 

At ParentsTogether, we believe that the parent voice is powerful.

We want to empower parents to tell their families’ stories to create a better nation for our children.

Our project was created to support and help parents learn how to use their unique stories to create change. Together, we share their stories in the news, with opinion leaders, and with other parents in the ParentsTogether community who have similar experiences and want to take action together.

We have built relationships with hundreds of concerned parents throughout the country. They trust us with their stories and we help them change the world. It’s that simple.

Who is a Storyteller? 

You! A Storyteller is anyone who identifies as a parent or caretaker who wants to share their family’s experience to help educate, inform, and advocate on behalf of policies and programs that will help kids and families thrive.

What is required of me as a Storyteller for ParentsTogether? 

All that is required is a desire to share your experiences as a parent. You will work with Natalie and Stephany to decide together what you’re comfortable sharing and with whom – our main priority is you.
