//About Storytellers for Change

empathy First

We are a collective of storytellers dedicated to creating positive social change. As storytellers, we practice radical empathy. This means first and foremost we are story-listeners. We believe the act of intentional listening is crucial to building and sustaining more inclusive and equitable communities. We practice this core value in our storytelling, facilitation, workshops, projects, and story-centered consulting. 

Storytellers for Change was founded in 2010 by Luis Ortega with the mission to bring a message of empathy and inclusion to schools and communities across the world. Since then, we've expanded to provide trainings and consulting services.

//About Storytellers for Change Projects

STORY-Centered

We believe storytelling and story-listening generate empathy and build more inclusive and equitable environments. This is why our Story-Centered approach is grounded on establishing opportunities for communities to come together to listen, learn, and develop partnerships to tackle complex social issues. 

From curating an event dedicated to celebrate young change makers to expanding access to clean water and oral health care, our Story-Centered approach is driving positive social change. Learn more >>
