Out Loud: Promoting Acceptance of Verbal Diversity

Grant awarded: $15,270

People who stutter often feel marginalized and stigmatized because of harmful stereotypes that exist in popular culture. Through a series of outreach and education materials including posters, social media posts, animated videos, printed comic books and in-person readings at stuttering community gatherings and spoken word nights, this project will help promote acceptance of people who stutter in order to create safe spaces for them in as many corners of society as possible.
