”The Facing Project is rooted in listening, and we believe that stories are the most powerful tool for change and understanding,” says The Facing Project Founder and President J.R. Jamison. “We are thrilled about this new partnership with TMA, and we can’t wait to work with the teams at Morgan State and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore on their Facing Projects. We have no doubt both projects will have far-reaching positive effects.”

Throughout the 2022-2023 academic year, the projects at Morgan State University and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore will use The Facing Project’s process, toolkit, and resources to train writers and collect stories from community members focused on the issues outlined below. By Spring 2023, stories from each project will be collected, edited, and published as books and released within their respective communities and to the public. TMA will host a celebration of these two inaugural projects after they have concluded their work.

To apply, representatives from TMA member institutions must submit the following information via the application form:

  • Full name, institution, position title, and full contact information of applicant
  • Brief outline of how applicant's institution / office / department will fund the $1,500 program fee (a 70% reduction in the normal program fee provided by The Facing Project & Transform Mid-Atlantic)
