Last year, as a teaching artist for 826NYC, Emily went into a school for kids in detention to help them write personal narrative stories. She told them that everyone else would try to write their stories, lawyers, social workers, police officers, but that this was their opportunity to tell their stories to the world in their own words, to define themselves.
Today we learned that the resulting book, Everything I Been Through, by Passage Academy Students has been selected for the Top 10 Nonfiction Novel for the 2021 In the Margins Book Award List! We're over the moon excited and proud of those kids.
Even though it's easy to be frustrated, we're trying to do all we can, even if it's just a little bit. Sometimes, a little goes a long way!
We create opportunities to explore big ideas, to acknowledge, observe, and confront the barriers and biases that fragment community and leave us feeling disconnected.
We celebrate joy, vulnerability, openness, humor, and growth.
We seek community, truth, responsibility, bravery, kindness, and acceptance.
Let's share our stories, songs, movement, culture, history, experience, and laughter on a journey towards wholeness.

We are working to help people, communities and organizations seek and find wholeness in an attempt to increase connection, foster engagement and change the way we all move through the world. We thrive on feedback and communication.
We would love to hear from you.
