The Facing Project / Transform Mid-Atlantic Partnership 2023-2024 Program Information Sessions
March 1, 2023 @ 11:00 am - March 10, 2023 @ 1:00 pm
2023-2024 The Facing Project / Transform Mid-Atlantic Program Partnership
Program & Application Information Session
Join The Facing Project co-founder and president J.R. Jamison, leaders of 2022-2023 TFP/TMA projects at Morgan State University and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, and TMA staff to learn more about how your campus can “face” complex and difficult community issues through dialogue and storytelling during the 2023-2024 academic year!
Transform Mid-Atlantic is proud to partner with The Facing Project in an effort to bring critical listening and purposeful storytelling to the forefront of community-engagement across the region. The sharing of stories of self has long been part of TMA’s programs and initiatives, as our own personal stories of transformation and experience can demonstrate the impact of service and civic and community engagement in catalyzing positive social change.
The Facing Project seeks to create “a more understanding and empathetic world through stories that inspire action.” Its projects, which have been created in dozens of communities throughout the United States and world, seek to “face” the complex and critical problems – from racial inequity to gun violence – in an environment in which multiple perspectives can be shared and heard. Transform Mid-Atlantic is teaming up with The Facing Project to co-sponsor campus-community based projects in Maryland, DC, and Delaware focused on topics at the heart of TMA’s mission.
This information sessions will:
- Include details about the purpose and goals of The Facing Project;
- Spotlight the work of TMA member campuses selected to create projects in 2022-2023;
- Provide more information about how your campus can apply to host and lead a 2023-2024 project.
