FRIENDS is pleased to announce the release of two animated/illustrated stories for the Sharing the Journey: Voices of Parent Leaders media collection. “Just Ask” and “Unstoppable” are personal narratives that have been transformed into brief, compelling videos and demonstrate the powerful impact of child abuse prevention efforts. The videos are a part of Sharing the Journey: Voices of Parent Leaders 2022 a collection of audio stories, including selections in Spanish, written and told by PAC members in their authentic voices. Either singularly or combined with the audio stories, these video vignettes can be used to increase public awareness or as tools to support training for staff, network members, partners, parents, and other key stakeholders about the value of parent engagement and involvement.
The new videos are available to view or download on the FRIENDS website, https://friendsnrc.org/parent-leadership/parent-stories.
