Unsilence

Unsilence is a non-profit service organization that fills a critical gap in civic education and engagment by unsilencing hidden injustices and marginalized voices. Our work lays a necessary foundation for educators, change-makers, and community leaders to succeed in their civic and social change work. We work directly with communities to facilitate tough conversations by using a unique approach that utilizes storytelling, the arts, and game design as a way to bridge perspectives, engage critical thinking, and identify root causes of silencing. To do this, we design highly-interactive, research-based, learning experiences (both digital and in-person) that empower participants to give voice to untold stories, breakdown engrained stigmas, and build collective empathy and understanding.
