Our Community Change Initiative “An Effort in Empathy” would not have been possible without the incredible support of the PLP Passport Fund. Our project aims to bring to light the true circumstances regarding adoption through the Denver Department of Human Services. During the fall quarter, we proved to tell the story of one family and their three adoptive children, through a photo journal series where the Passport Fund made developing the film possible.
As we are all currently studying abroad (Cara in New Zealand, Loren in Austria, and Darylann in Morocco) the final stages of the project, where the biggest portion of the funds will be used, have been put on hold until we return to Denver in January. We have secured a space in the 023 Art Gallery and will present the stories of at least 10 more families who have been established through the work of the Denver Department of Human Services and their organization Stand Up for Me. We can’t wait to get back to work on a project that we are so passionate about.
Stay tuned for more information about the show’s opening in 2017!
