Chicago is indeed the city of the big shoulders- broad, proud, and strong enough to do more and be better.
Big Shoulders Stories strives to combine the magic of storytelling with the power of the voices of those
working to change our communities.
“Storytelling can change our hearts and our minds…
helps us see each other in a new light, to have empathy, to recognize that for all our diversity we are humans first... so we can see and hear what we might have been afraid of seeing and hearing. Stories, they really can change people.”
Jane Fonda, 2021
