We all deserve to feel seen.
How We Give Back
Original content showcased and created by minority groups (women, people with disabilities, people of color, LGBTQ+, etc) has long been overlooked and not supported. While we have some successes to celebrate, there is still a lot of work to be done. The industry hasn’t opened enough doors, so We Have Stories is working to kick them off the hinges. Each of us deserves to see ourselves reflected on screen, in books, backstage, and more.
Understanding The Issue
While there has been small gains in diversity in media and produced content, the reality is, there is still a long way to go.
An example of this can be found in a 2018 report by the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA. According to a 2018 report by Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA, minority groups (women, people with disabilities, people of color, LGBTQ+ members etc.) remain underrepresented in film leads (13.9%), film directors (12.6%), film writers (8.1%), broadcast scripted leads (18.7%), cable scripted leads (20.2%), broadcast reality and other leads (26.6%) and leads for cable reality and other leads (20.9%).
It's time for a change.
Our aim is to empower the next female director. Promote the next LGBTQ author or South Asian screenwriter. Provide resources to the autistic photographer with an incredible vision, or to the Black animator, who has a powerful story to share.
To do this, we provide free services to select non-corporate clients via application process. From large projects like website development, to the simplest of needs, such as printing event flyers, our mission is to support the stories that will change the world.
