Storytelling is a powerful tool for social, political and personal activism. Experiment with the power of storytelling to pursue your passion.
Teach people in your organization how to tell their "who I am/why I am here" stories and you will help them find renewed inner strength. Help a group to document and discuss their organizational or community stories and they will discover the power of story to unify despite differences to create collective action. You will find a complete case study of storytelling for community action on my website www.groupprocessconsulting.com. Forty-three men, women, and teenagers from a poor community in Houston used donated disposable cameras to tell the story of their community. It was a mountaintop experience.
