Summary

Stories Change Power empowers people to be effective in advocacy communications. In other words, we help hearts and minds reach the hearts and minds in power. This GlobalGiving project funds scholarships for people who are new (or new-ish) to the field of advocacy and cannot otherwise afford to join our small-by-design learning communities. These cohorts support effective and rewarding careers in advocacy and, like all of our programming, are anchored in respect, candor, and growth.

Challenge

We will never see a just, equitable, and peaceful world without adjusting current laws, policies, and systems. Even well-intentioned laws, policies, and systems fail when they are not well-informed. The organizations working to inform policymakers and advocating for change are only as effective as their communications efforts, but many do not have the budget or bandwidth to provide professional development in the emerging field of advocacy and public interest communications.

Solution

Our programming empowers people and mission-driven organizations to achieve their purpose in furtherance of a just, equitable, and peaceful world. Participants learn to channel the power of narrative, blend stories and data, and center people who bear the brunt of the problem their organization seeks to solve, while we build community, encourage collaboration, and prevent burnout. Participants are matched with a mentor for ongoing support.

Long-Term Impact

Done well, advocacy communications has the power to shape laws, policies, and systems to support a just, equitable, and peaceful world. Effective communication is essential to impact, and professional development is essential to effective communication. Our support for individuals also supports organizations where they work today and throughout their careers. We increase organizational impact, decrease training time, and decrease staff turnover, all in service of a stronger shared future.
