You can make a difference. With permission, we will share these stories with area residents, and local, state, and national policymakers and the media. We will also preserve them for researchers and future generations in archives online and in our local historical societies.

We will offer several story collection workshops and opportunities throughout the regions impacted by flooding. Individuals are invited to share their stories in ways that feel comfortable to them. We offer writing support, audio recording, and video recording options. Please check back for the dates and times for these options. If you’d prefer to share your story through online submission, please fill out the form below. Thank you.



Your donation allows us to support people in telling their stories through workshops, recording sessions, transcription services, archiving, and publication.
