Eighteen underrepresented experts gathered today at the Women’s Foundation of Southern Arizona for our third consecutive Write to Change the World program in Tucson. Efforts to bring this program to the people of Tucson began in 2013, and were inspired by the highly-successful inaugural cohort of Tucson Public Voices Fellows. Fellows have continued this effort each year, and made the tools of public voice available to everyone in their community–regardless of means.
Today’s program brought together scholars, social entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders and community activists from a wide range of local organizations. Experts in the room are shaping the conversation around incarceration, storytelling, financial literacy, food systems and agriculture and much more.
