Overview


How might stories create justice?

Mass Story Lab is a community storytelling project  making stories an instrument of justice. In a Mass Story Lab, the stories of people directly impacted by mass incarceration become the lens through which communities imagine a world beyond prisons.

The Mass Story Lab Speaker’s Bureau

The Mass Story Lab Speaker’s Bureau is a list of available speakers throughout the country who have participated in a Mass Story Lab. We’ve seen time and time again that personal stories educate audience members and increase their desire to continue educating themselves and others, inspire political engagement, evoke empathy and compassion, and provide the atmosphere needed for productive conversations during and after an event. The Speaker’s Bureau’s goal is to support storytellers in future speaking opportunities, be a resource for communities and organizations looking for speakers, promote overall goal of centering storytelling as a method of advocacy and Criminal Justice reform efforts
