WHAT KUP PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THEIR TRAINING…

“At the end of the day, what we have is our stories. Our stories unite us, heal us, and touch the common ground of our humanity. The Know Us Project taught me to trust the stories that ask to be shared. I feel eager and prepared to share them with safety, assessing the risk, believing in the reward. Thank you!”

“This KUP gave me tools and insights into how to be an effective advocate by telling my story – it has also showed me that I don’t need to tell my story to everyone!”

“KUP showed me how important it is for straight people to understand that discrimination can have an ugly face and we can work together to change that.”

“I have always hidden my pain before. I never imagined that talking about it could actually make a difference.”

“KUP showed me how important it is to talk about my actual experiences if I want things to change.”

“This provided a nice meeting for me to open my mind and feel more assertive. I will be using this, maybe even tomorrow. I love the work they are doing.”

“The Know Us Project is an excellent way for people to share in the power of a personal story. For people who feel unsure about talking about their investment in LGBT justice, this training is a slam dunk!”

“I would tell everyone that this is an essential training – even if you never have a KUP conversation. I think the skills and knowledge gained in the training are valuable for all individuals to have. It helped me think about the power of my voice – and way it is important for individuals to tell their story – and how to tell my story with purpose and maximum impact.”

“Sometimes we need a time set aside for discovery and awareness building that isn’t on a certain campaign or movement-building. This KUP training provided time for reminding me why I do this work.”

“The opportunity to share stories and build relationships in our community is so important.”

“Both of the facilitators were great. The setting was very comfortable and I left with a feeling of hopefulness and understanding that can come only from spending such insightful time with one’s peers. Great job! Great program!”

“I very much liked the team approach used by the facilitators. I feel it allowed for a relaxed atmosphere throughout the whole training time allotted. That atmosphere was conducive to a genuine learning. Thank you.”
