Nation Inside

Nation Inside is a project of the story strategy firm Working Narratives, focused on advocacy against mass incarceration in the US. The project is centered around a web platform that collects personal stories in a “Storybank,” and acts as a hub that activists can use to create campaigns. While the Storybank contains more than just digital personal experience narratives—there are also, for example, many newsy blog posts and videos of meetings—there are a fair number of video and audio testimonials from family members of incarcerated Americans. The platform also enables incarcerated Americans to telephone in their testimonials via a toll-free “Storyline.”
