Why Storytelling?

Fighting for social justice begins with a story. For PRA, this is a story of resistance. For nearly 40 years, PRA has brought social justice movements eye-opening, reliable research and analysis on the oppositional forces that attack individuals, communities, and institutions fighting fearlessly to build power that advances our democracy and ensures all of us thrive.

At Celebrating Resistance, we will feature personal storytellers live at one of four venues (Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, or New York City).

Storytellers will share a short personal story about an event that happened, something they witnessed, a moment of personal reflection or a time when they changed someone’s perspective.

What Do Funds from Celebrating Resistance Support?

When you support Celebrating Resistance Story Hour, you are providing crucial funding for Political Research Associates to carry out our mission to advance human rights and democracy. Each year, PRA must raise every dollar to publish The Public Eye, a one-of-a-kind volume of research and analysis critical to the social justice community worldwide. Funding will enable PRA to continue recruiting a wide variety of contributors, keep our publication free online, and cover our printing and editorial costs.

In addition, these resources will help PRA expand our capacity for storytelling and strategic communications as our research team and movement partners take on the challenges ahead of us in 2020.
