FII is proud to announce the National Narrative Shifters, a year long fellowship for current and former Family Partners.
Thirteen people from five sites across the country were selected, for their inspiration and their belief that part of changing the system is changing the narrative in the society about hard working families.
Their role is to capture the stories of FII families. They are reflecting together on their own experiences, and they are aiming to shift the way the society understands who FII families are.
Each Shifter has a “buddy” from another part of the country who they check in with weekly, to trade tips and checkin on how it’s going. The stories linked below (click on the pic) are profiles each buddy wrote about the other. Join us in welcoming this talented group!
