For immediate release:

So Say We All is very honored to announce the launch of its new education outreach program in storytelling for both teens and adults at Father Joe’s Village, made possible through the generosity of the Mason-Hirst Foundation and Joanna Hirst. Education Outreach Director Stacy Dyson and Executive Director Justin Hudnall will lead workshops among the teenage children of long-term residents at The Village as well as with adults through the Health and Wellness program, leading up to a joint showcase at The Space 4 Art in August.

It has been So Say We All’s goal since its inception to bring its mission of fostering self-expression to communities underrepresented in the mainstream media. We look upon this joint venture with St. Vincent de Paul as a monumental step towards making that a reality, and we are deeply grateful for the patronage that has made it possible.
