BENEFITING: VOICES UNBROKEN
EVENT DATE: Nov 29, 2016
Voices UnBroken was founded 16 years ago with the belief that we all have an inherent need - and right- to share our stories and be heard. In our history, we have met and heard the stories of over 5,000 youth across New York City. These youth were at Rikers Island, in juvenile justice facilities, group homes and other alternative settings. Voices UnBroken’s collection of stories range from heartbreak and loss to new beginnings and triumph. The stories of the youth we've met have inspired many and remind us that our society cannot be whole without them. Our organization is changing the narrative about vulnerable youth in New York City through their own words and stories.
This year our goal for #GiveVoice is to raise $10,000 which will cover the cost of 10-sessions of Voices UnBroken creative writing workshops. With your help, all of the donations we receive will amplify the voices of youth who are missing from our communities.
Let them be heard.
