Storytelling for Social Justice

School of Social Work ENGAGE Virtual Discussion

Storytelling for Social Justice Storytelling for Social Justice
Storytelling for Social Justice
Storytelling — listening to the stories of others and sharing one’s own stories — builds a foundation for human interaction. Telling others how we got here and why we care about an issue builds connection, allows us to share our values, and creates meaning. The art of public narrative is used in all aspects of social work practice — from helping our clients rewrite the stories they tell themselves, to helping communities and groups galvanize social change, to helping policy makers and politicians tell a “story of self” while creating a “story of us.” Join us for a discussion featuring Aaron Foley, former chief storyteller for the City of Detroit and current professor of journalism at New York University; Eric Thomas, current chief storyteller for the City of Detroit; and Jessica Care Moore, Detroit poet, activist and author.
