Storytelling for Social Change with Ben Greene

Apr 25, 2024 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join PFLAG and NAMI Charlotte for a workshop on impactful storytelling led by trans advocate and educator Ben Greene.

Storytelling for Social Change: How Your Story Can Make a Difference

Through sharing a number of his own personal stories, professional speaker and storyteller Ben Greene will share with attendees the impact that storytelling can have and the tools for telling a meaningful story. He will also share how to center joy, understand the emotional costs of storytelling, and set storytelling boundaries. Once we’ve all gotten comfortable with the “how” and “why” of storytelling, we’ll break off into small groups and you’ll have an opportunity to share your story (if you’d like).

Ben Greene is a transgender advocate and educator who has spoken internationally on topics surrounding transgender inclusion. After coming out at 15 in a small town, Ben has devoted his career to spreading empathy, education, and storytelling around the trans experience, and has spoken for companies, hospitals, schools, religious organizations, and government entities sharing what it means to be transgender and how to show up as an ally. He is a fierce advocate for transgender youth, regularly speaking in their defense at the Missouri State Capitol, and is publishing a book for parents and families of transgender youth. He is passionate about educating others from a place of compassion—no matter where they’re starting from.
