Telling a personal story to an audience can seem like a daunting and nerve-wracking experience. It also has the potential to be a cathartic, impactful way to educate an audience on complicated and systematic issues. Ex Fabula has partnered with Marquette University and Project Return to bring a night of storytelling on the topic of incarceration to the Marquette campus. Project Return is a Milwaukee non-profit that supports recently incarcerated individuals as they transition from prison institutions to their respective communities. This event is part of Marquette’s Mission Week which will center on the topics of race relations, institutional, personal, and cultural racism titled “Racial Justice: Black, White and the Call of the Church”.
I am very excited to be joining the Ex Fabula team while serving through Public Allies Milwaukee! I started my mission here as a Public Ally to expand representation of diverse groups of people and uplift their very unique experiences. My passion for equity started far before college. I’m a first generation Chilean-American and grew up in a bilingual household. My parents raised me with strong ethics and compassion for others. Naturally I developed my desires early on.
