Story Stitchers are thankful for the love and friendships we share, for the power of art to create change, and for freedom of speech. We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

As you navigate Thanksgiving week travels, enjoy family and friends, and participate in lively discussions, think about creating a video or some photographs. Be thankful and loud.

Story Stitchers invites you to share your experiences and thoughts on implicit bias. There are many important topics that relate to this and many that are timely in the world today.
