There’s power in sharing your story, and advocates often emphasize getting personal when doing the work of building support around a cause. The personal is compelling, while facts often fall flat. Having the opportunity to share your story can drive change and be liberating. And it can also take a lot of emotional and mental energy, particularly when the part of your story you’re being asked to retell may be rooted in trauma, or hardships.
A group of refugees, stateless people, and asylees who advocate for humanitarian protections gather to get honest about their experiences sharing their personal stories for the movement; the times that have felt freeing, and the things they wish reporters would stop asking.
