MESSAGE 2 OF 2

Workshop Update:

Ten beautiful, courageous people participated in the workshop on May 17th. Seven of them chose to share their stories on Cowbird. One is still planning to record her story.

The stories can be accessed at http://cowbird.com/topic/all-together-now/. The titles are listed below--if you sort the page by "Most recent" they will be near the top.

Friends by Cristian Carrau
A Good Lesson by Shelleen Greene
Simple Kiss by Alenka Figa
Everyone Gets to Play by Sandy Stefczak
Bread and Roses by Ed Werstein
Next Time by Ijab Ali-Correa
Conquer the World by Gregory Johnson (this was the most watched and loved story on the entire Cowbird website on May 29th!)

I cannot put into words how amazing it was to be present that day. Everyone listened deeply, provided thoughtful feedback, supported each other and then recorded their stories to share with the world. The young people, especially, walked in not really knowing what to expect and really rose to the occasion. I had never met any of them before. I still don't know much about them at all, but through their stories I know them enough to say that it was a privilege to share the day with them.

Thanks again for helping to make this possible!

MESSAGE 1 OF 2 (due to limits on message length)

All-

I'm not sure that I can adequately express my gratitude for your generosity and support, but I am going to give it my best shot. When I decided to take on this project, I knew it was going to be a lot of work (and that it was going to be expensive). Once I grabbed hold of the idea, though, I couldn't let it go.

My attempts to solicit support from non-profit organizations with a social justice focus were unsuccessful. Given that many are surviving from donation to donation themselves, this was understandable. I had recently become aware of this thing called crowdfunding, so I thought I would give it a try. I am happy to report that thanks to your collective support of the All Together Now Milwaukee project, I was able to raise just over half the amount needed to cover the workshop expenses! Thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I am so fortunate to have such wonderful family and friends.

One of my favorite quotes is from Roslyn Bresnick-Perry: "It's hard to hate anyone whose story you know." That pretty much sums up the whole idea behind the All Together Now project. Another one, which I truly believe, is attributed in a different form to Pat Speight: "The shortest distance between two people is a story."

Thank you for helping the world take a few steps in the right direction.

Warmest regards,

Teresa
