As part of our policy and campaign work, we always have to make the case for why people with convictions should be treated fairly. An effective way of doing this is by using real stories and voices that are rarely heard.
That’s why we’re looking for volunteers to help us with some work we’re doing to create ‘digital stories’. Digital storytelling is a short form of media production that allows people to share aspects of their life story. It can involve the use of video, sound, animation and photos.
We’ve set aside some time in October to create some digital stories, covering some of the key issues that people with convictions face. It will be led by someone who has themselves spent the last 16 years coming to terms with their own story.
And that’s where we need your help.
