THE STORY:

We are a 501c3 nonprofit, and all contributions are tax-deductible. To donate without joining CrowdRise, click here

Story of America is a crowdfunded web documentary series that I created with Eric Byler in November 2012. Since that time, Eric and I have been traveling around the country in search of stories that illuminate why we have become so divided and unequal as a people and how we may become more united. 

We have over 100 YouTube videos with no advertising reaching 1.35 million viewers. Our videos are already being used at community screenings, in news coverage, and classrooms. 

We are currently finishing edits on our feature-length documentary, Journey into the Divide, about our experiences in the first year of Story of America. Filmed in the South, it tells the story of our journey into our nation's divide rooted in historical events and how we interprete those events.

Our journey in 2013 eventually took us to North Carolina when it became ground zero of America's political divide. We documented the NC state lawmakers, some of the citizens living on the edges of the economy, and the protesters involved with the Moral Monday movement struggling in that divide. We were suprised to discover that the heart of the Moral Monday movement was a yearning for racial reconciliation. 

In 2014, we are focusing on dramatic stories that reveal potential solutions to our nation's most vexing and divisive challenges. The first in our series is on access to healthcare. We report from rural eastern North Carolina in the town of Belhaven which is facing the closing of its hospital. 

We have found that often concerned citizens are ahead of our elected representatives in finding common ground and discovering innovative solutions. The Story of America team has faith that when We the People talk to each other, great change will follow. We need you to get involved as storytellers and supporters. Thank you so much! - Annabel Park
