In August 2014 SNAP entered a community partnership with StoryCorps. Since 2003 StoryCorps has collected and archived more than 50,000 interviews with over 90,000 participants. With the storyteller's permission, each conversation is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects of its kind, and millions listen to their weekly broadcasts on NPR's Morning Edition and on their Listen pages. SNAP President Barbara Blaine was interviewed by her friend and mentor Judge Sheila Murphy and the story aired on WBEZ in Chicago August 1.
In honor of the 25th Anniversary of SNAP, during the 2014 National Conference Aug 1-3 StoryCorps reserved two full recording days for SNAP members to share their stories. We are so proud of the brave survivors who have made their stories available to you with the hope that those who have not yet found the courage, will be inspired to come forward.
Since then, others have been able to record at the StoryCorps booths in San Francisco, Atlanta and Chicago. They even have a mobile booth that may be coming to a town near you soon. We would love to hear your story! Explore the links below for more information. As always, feel free to call the SNAP office with any questions, 314-282-9936.
