Our first research project – Story at Scale – is a data-driven narrative research project designed for practical use by advocates, artists, and campaigners in all of their communications and organizing efforts.
COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE
A learning space where funders, activists, artists, and researchers working at the intersection of gender justice and social change work to share information and contribute to a living library of ongoing resources.
To give organizations and campaigns the opportunity to explore and build on culture change strategies, we provide direct grants.
