Being a part of this amazing project for 7 years now, there are many topics that have made an impact on me. But the strongest is a heightened appreciation for the power of sharing one’s story.
I had the extreme good fortune of watching this process in action during the making of A Lot Like You. AND I’ve seen it continue countless times after screenings, during discussions with audience members, and in ongoing conversations with so many of you. I am honored to be a part of providing a way to help continue this trend and conversation.
I hope The ALLY Project facilitates the notion that everyone’s story is important, that everyone has the right to be heard, and once we do share, we discover similarities and increase our ability to respectfully coexist amidst diversity. From this place, we can rise together.
