FIGHT Stories is an annual project that started in 2010 as a way for FIGHT’s clients and consumers to share their personal stories of struggle, triumph and hope with our community. At FIGHT, we believe storytelling is one of the most valuable tools we have to communicate how impactful the work of our agency has been and continues to be in the lives of those we serve.
Every year, a dedicated team of staffers and interns begins the multi-step, multimedia process of interviewing, audio/video recording, photographing story participants and finally, compiling the words of each participant into a story than can be shared on the internet, in FIGHT publications, and on our office walls.
By 2020, the 10th anniversary of the FIGHT Stories Project, we hope to have profiled over 100 community members. These stories are the heart of FIGHT and we look forward to sharing more inspiring and powerful journeys of the clients and consumer that we are proud to serve.
