Welcome to the Digital Story Policy Lab! Drawing from our innovative and culturally centered approaches for engagement, we aim to activate communication power by supporting community teams to build place-based, solutions-centered multimedia stories. The intention is to provide the technical skills needed to expand beyond practice to reach systems and policy change through community-led multimedia production.

The use of digital stories is an important communication strategy for sharing knowledge and elevating community voice.
