Listening for a Change

Community Listening Project


Listening for a Change works to eliminate prejudice and intolerance in order to promote true acceptance of others. This is achieved by working with communities to develop oral histories and art projects based upon the personal stories of community members who have lost human or civil rights.

Mission: Listening for a Change promotes understanding and acceptance of human diversity through education, oral history, and the arts.

Vision: As our communities become increasingly diverse, it is imperative for the benefit of all that we find meaningful ways to respect and understand the rich and complex cultures among us.

Listening for a Change works to dispel “otherness.” This is achieved through programs in schools, communities, businesses, and nonprofits bringing community together through story.
