The Power of Storytelling to Promote Social Change

The Power of Storytelling to Promote Social Change

Columbia University in the City of New York‘s graduate-level multi-media class’ Professor Lance Weiler discovered Orange Duffel Bag Foundation on Facebook,  through a mutual friend of my brother Kevin Montgomery, who did a second 50 States in 50 Days tour to bring attention to our cause. Lance chose us as the basis for this semester’s class on the power of storytelling to promote social change. I got to speak to the class in September. By the end of the semester, the students created a multi-media experience designed to help people understand what it’s like to age out of foster care at age 18. Weiler wrote about the project in a recent issue of “GOOD Magazine.” Here’s the link: http://www.good.is/posts/purposeful-storytelling-how-designing-with-instead-of-for-promotes-understanding.

This project marks only the second time Columbia has selected a nonprofit to highlight for a semester.
