This year for Giving Tuesday, help 1500 Stories give voice to economic inequality

If you believe in the power of stories to build empathy across our differences, consider making a donation to the 1500 Stories project. 1500 Stories is a collaborative art and digital storytelling project about economic inequality in the U.S. So, far we have collected nearly 500 stories from people living at different economic positions in the Silicon Valley, New Jersey and Wisconsin. Your donation can help us share those stories with the world! If you aren’t ready to donate, you can still become advocate for the project by sharing the Giving Tuesday campaign within your social networks. Go to:

A film I helped make will be screening at the Bay Area Women in Film and Media Shorts Showcase on December 8

Berning Love, a documentary short about the search for love during the waning days of the Bernie Sanders primary campaign, was accepted into the Bay Area Women in Film and Media Shorts Showcase.  I filled many roles on this film, including director of research, co-writer, assistant producer, co-editor and occasionally second camera. :) The showcase promises to be a wonderful evening of film shorts that had women in leadership roles behind the camera.  The showcase is on December 8 starting at 6pm at Second Act, 1727 Haight St, San Francisco, CA 94117.  You can get tickets to the event here.  Below are some outtakes from the film--Dr. Doug Pierce, political scientist, discussing the role of emotion in politics. 

These particular clips were shot by Sujatha Bagal, produced by Katherine Chivers and edited by me.
