Narrative practitioners often seek to incorporate audiences in efforts such as letter-writing campaigns, outsider witness practices, reflecting teamwork, Tree of Life gatherings, ‘reclaiming community, and other community rituals. We listen for resonance toward making links across shared themes, seeking solidarity and building on family and community resourcefulness. Below we’ve included several  materials by marcela polanco and Maggie Carey. We invite you to send some of your own contributions.
