The Power of Stories to Make the Invisible Visible

Sue’s mantra to “find the story and give the client a voice” guides her work. At Being The Story 2016 she described what her “normal” looks like. Sue shared her belief that in order to find solutions for people, it’s important to know their stories. By finding someone’s story, Sue believes you can properly advocate on their behalf and ensure they get access to justice. She also set a challenge to those in positions of power, including the media, who can influence change to do more to put a spotlight on what is happening to some of the most vulnerable in our society.
