YMP's inaugural Fall 2018 "Storytelling for Change" Fellowship trained a diverse, intergenerational group of new and experienced writers, artists, organizers, educators, and local community members in the power of crafting and telling detailed, heart-moving, and inspiring personal stories that touch upon themes of civil injustice and civil liberties. 2018 Fellows included: Saburo Masada, Marion Isame Nakamura Masada, Anjali Kapoor-Davis, Nohemi Samudio Gamis, Paul Sanchez, CJ Acosta, Chimine Arfuso, Daniel Del Muro, Iman Alamri, Cassandra Little, Miya Sommers, Kelly Rauch, Cindy Vang, and Will Freeney.
Stories have power. The narratives we write and tell ourselves shape our lives and communities; they inspire action, bring nuance to memory and history, and help us envision a future world.
