Choose-Your-Own-Pathway!

Hi there!

100 STUDENTS: In a public school in Chicago, right now, Unsilence is leading a 6-week social justice residency. Around 100 students are working in small teams to explore human rights and social injustice.

INTERACTIVE STORIES: The students started the residency by exploring an Unsilence choose-your-own-pathway story. And now they are creating interactive stories of their own.

MENTAL HEALTH: Mental health has become a common theme across the students' stories. As they write their stories, the students are learning about trauma, depression, and illness as they connect to different forms of violence and oppression, including sexism, racism, immigration rights, LGBTQ experiences, and environmental injustice.

We are so grateful for your support. Our work at Unsilence is only possible because you believe in what we do.

TOMORROW: If you haven't explored it yet, check out our Unsilence feature "TOMORROW" -- an original interactive story, based on real events, that helps young people, educators, and parents talk about mental health and suicide. The "choose-your-own-pathway" structure draws learners in and each decision point highlights the complexities of mental health in school settings.

TODAY: Thank you again for your support. If you are able, please consider making a contribution today to support our work. We can't unsilence without you!

All my best,

Danny
