Voices That Matter Most

"If we don't tell our stories, others will tell them for us - and they will get them wrong."

The Voices That Matter Most project works with KIND clients and other immigrant and refugee children to help them share their stories  of fear, flight, resilience, and hope for public education and advocacy.  Through workshops, trainings, and public speaking and advocacy opportunities, the Voices That Matter Most helps children tell their personal stories, build communications skills and gain confidence and self-esteem that that will help set them on a path toward hopeful and productive futures. As they share their unique stories in a variety of ways, these young people learn how to bring about positive change within their schools, communities, and beyond.

Through KIND’s Voices and Imagination Stage project in August 2020, Isaias learned how to create and produce his own stop-motion animation. Isaias decided to share his story through his artwork and video. Isaias writes, “My story is about a young man who has suffered through a lot in his life, from losing his parents to having depression and wanting to commit suicide. But he has a dream of being a singer and showing people that the impossible is possible.” Watch here:
