In anticipation of Grief Awareness Day, join national nonprofit StoryCorps as they share conversations from their archive, including a premiere of their new animated short from their Road to Resilience project. In partnership with New York Life Foundation, StoryCorps' Road to Resilience leverages the power of stories and storytelling to help children cope with the death of a parent, sibling, or loved one. Through this project, we partner with bereavement support organizations to provide opportunities for children and their families to preserve memories of their loved ones, share their grief journeys, or simply to record themselves as they are.
