I'm from Driftwood

Region: National
Grant duration: Three Years
Amount: $80,000

The Palette Fund grant will help fund I’m From Driftwood’s Weekly Video Story program, as well as its Resource Packet program. The weekly Video Stories will provide a wide range of first-person stories told from a diverse group of storytellers. In addition to preserving history, the stories increase a sense of belonging within the LGBT community, and increase empathy amongst potential allies. The Resource Packets will provide professionals with LGBT clients and patients an educational toolkit on how to use storytelling in their work. The first packet will focus on psychologists and family counselors, and the second packet will be designed for religious leaders.
