Welcome to "Hear Our Stories"

“Hear Our Stories” uses new media to amplify young parenting Latinas’ voices in larger public conversations. Existing programs and policies focused on these women fail to use relevant local knowledge and rarely involve them in messaging efforts. “Hear Our Stories” aims to transform stigmatizing assumptions about young parenting Latinas through the innovative use of digital storytelling. The ultimate goal of the program is to shift conversations about family making, sexuality, health, and rights across generations.
