The TMI Project’s second annual fundraiser, Voices in Action: Community Outreach Showcase, brings you true stories from the too-often-silenced corners of our community.

The Community Outreach Initiative

The Community Outreach Initiative brings TMI Project’s memoir workshops to marginalized populations, giving a public voice to inmates, at-risk teens, terminally ill patients, domestic abuse survivors, veterans, LBGTQ teens, and others. By providing a forum for these individuals to process past experiences through the powerful mechanism of storytelling, the workshops pave a path for them to transcend moments of pain, powerlessness, and shame and become advocates for change.

Listen to our podcast with TMI Project founders.

Voices in Action: Community Outreach Showcase 2017

Hear Ralph’s story on coming out, finding true love, and getting sober. Listen to the story of Zoe’s life-changing 180—from a crack addict, prostitute, and inmate to an author and educator. Morris will share all the things he wishes his grandmother knew about living with schizophrenia. These are just a few of the moving narratives that will be shared at the event.
