Help our fellows tell their stories!

We recently announced our crowdfunding campaign to help fund our class of 2015 Community Storytelling Fellows.

To help us reach our goal we’re asking our community and people who care about media diversity to help get the word out and help us find those new supporters.

There are some easy ways you can help us:

Copy and paste any of the social media messages to your Twitter and Facebook accounts:

  • Only 7% of radio professionals are people of color. Help @Making_Contact support #pubmedia #diversity
  • More real stories from real communities. Support @Making_Contact’s Fellows:
  • “What stories do we share when we speak to strangers, our parents & friends?” #storytelling #pubmedia
  • We need more real stories from real community members. Support this Storytelling Fellowship: #journalism #diversity
  • If you believe #pubmedia needs more #diversity, support this amazing project Help #changethenarrative #journalism

Support your favorite project. Share these customized images and tweets with your online network.
