Hello from STOP!

Hi Everyone

I'm just sending a quick update before the end of the year to say hello and give you a few updates on what's going on with the StoryTelling & Organizing Project.

There's a brand new video clip up there for you to see featuring a couple of our amazing partners from the Harm Free Zone Project in Durham, NC, talking about the story collecting process (and more video clips to follow!).  We're also slowly releasing new story segments, so keep checking back for new stuff.

We recently held really great listening sessions  in Durham and in the Bay Area during which we got to share some new story segments and get into talking about concrete ways partners can incorporate STOP into their ongoing work.  I also want to give a shout to our pals at Thousand Kites up at Appalshop who helped us think about more ways to help people access our project. We'd love to come to your town, too, so be in touch if you want us to come through.

Creative Interventions' own Mimi Kim has an article in a new book called, Restorative Justice and Violence against Women edited by James Ptacek.  Mimi's piece, co-authored by Joan Pennell, is called, "
Opening Conversations Across Cultural, Gender, and Generational Divides: Family and Community Engagement to Stop Violence Against Women and Children," and includes information about STOP.  You can learn more about the book at:

Thanks to all of you for helping make this year such an action-packed and productive year for STOP. Here's hoping the end of the year brings you some rest and a chance to recharge.  Talk to you all soon!
