We are inviting community members like you with a connection to sexual or reproductive health care, education or advocacy to submit your personal story for consideration. Selected stories will be told live at our event!
Susanne Schmidt, Moth Producer and the Director of Say it Forward Productions, will assist us in the story selection process and will then work with storytellers to edit, practice, and prepare for the event.
