L.A. Storytellers – My Journey, My Rights
Submission deadline: April 5, 2009

Share Your Story
Have you lived in another city or country?
Were your human rights challenged during your journeys?
Did you witness anything that changed your perception of human rights?
How have these experiences shaped you, living in Los Angeles ?

Now in its third year, LA Storytellers is a unique gathering and sharing opportunity for Angelenos to exchange life stories, vivid memories, oral histories, and engaging experiences. This year, as part of the International Day of Sharing Life Stories, LA Storytellers invites you to tell us your life stories and experiences around this year’s theme: “Journeys Toward Justice: Capturing the Stories of Human Rights in the Context of Migration.”

Human rights/immigrant rights life stories in all languages (we ask that you provide English translation) will be accepted. Stories do not have to be firsthand. Submit no later than April 5. Must be at least 18 years old to participate. Selected stories will be shared at the LA Storytellers open house public event/exhibit on May 16.
