“We believe in the transformative power of storytelling, particularly through books, as a means to facilitate healing and ignite a love for reading in children. By channeling their experiences into narratives, the young authors and their surviving parents embark on a journey of self-expression and therapeutic healing.” – RISE founder and Executive Director Lynniah Grayson
The writers are children who have tragically lost a parent to gun violence, along with their surviving parents. Writing is a crucial aspect of their healing process. It allows them to navigate the complexities of grief and contribute to a collective narrative that extends support to others facing similar challenges.
BOOKS BENEFIT FAMILIES
Books will be available in print form for $25 per book. Writer families will also receive 50 copies of their stories to sell themselves providing a tangible resource for those navigating the challenges of gun violence loss.
