Voices in Action: Community Outreach Showcase & Fundraiser at BSP in Kingston

Join TMI Project for a night of unforgettable true storytelling by participants in workshops offered through its Community Outreach Initiative. Through this program TMI, a Hudson Valley non-profit, brings distinct versions of its transformational memoir writing workshops to incarcerated and at-risk teens, cancer patients, survivors of domestic violence, military veterans, LBGTQ teens, and other populations that don't often get to tell their stories or be heard. Honoree Tony Porter will be given an award for his groundbreaking, internationally recognized work aimed at preventing violence against women as well as his partnership with TMI Project and the Kingston High School Football Team. Tony Porter is a leading voice on male socialization and his 2010 TED Talk, seen by over 2 million viewers, has been named by GQ Magazine as one of the “Top 10 TED Talks Every Man Should See.” This year TMI Project will also be recognizing four local leaders and activists as TMI Project Agents of Change: Jeramie Collins, former head coach of the Kingston High School Football team; Elise Gold, co-founder of The Maya Gold Foundation; Callie Jayne, lead organizer for Citizen Action of New York; and Denise Ranaghan, director of adult wellness services at Mental Health Association of Ulster County. Tickets are $75 per person. All proceeds will be used to advance the Community Outreach Initiative of TMI Project, a non-profit organization offering transformative memoir workshops and performances that invite storytellers and audience members to explore new perspectives.
