What We’re Doing
“It Takes a Thousand Voices to Tell a Single Story”
-Native American Proverb
The project begins with a single story about life as a student in Westside Charlotte to highlight the difference one student can make. However, this is just one story told through one set of eyes in a particular moment in time.
The mission of RUN-DNC-2012 is to end our project with thousands of voices from our community that represents and presents a collective “Westside Charlotte Story” to the 15,000 reporters arriving in our city for the Democratic National Convention.
