stories of resistance
We’re hopeful for the future, because so many of you, from so many places, are pushing back against systemic oppression.
However, in the majority of cases, those showing up to resist go without recognition. We believe these individual stories of resistance need to be told, providing inspiration for the rest of us to stand up and be counted.
Share your story with the world
The daCunha Projects team is searching the world for stories from the frontline of resistance, whenever and wherever it’s found. We’re producing a book—a collection of your experiences to share your stories and amplify your voices. A book to capture a movement—making change happen together.
All book sales revenue will directly support emerging storytellers of daCunha, with 50% going to those sharing their story here. All published stories will also be eligible for payment according to our contributor scheme found here. Submit your story or follow our journey as we publish them.
