I have been fortunate to have worked with Marko and the Existence Project as part of my Soci 438 class. This organization brings people together to share stories, build communities and save lives. Their website (available here) is a wealth of information about the workshops they offer, the speakers they have had, and some of the stories they have told. Also, there are a number of our students featured in links (hi Meera and Rachael!).
