Narrative 4 is a giant family. Mothers edit documents. Fathers donate to the cause. Spouses document our efforts. Children create N4 school clubs. And Jacqueline (Jackie) Crockett, a cousin of our executive director, started Narrative 4 Arizona. That’s how we roll!
The Grand Canyon State may have been the last of the contiguous United States to be admitted to the Union, but it is one of the first to join the Narrative 4 family. What began with a phone call has spiraled into a statewide initiative. Jackie, whose background is in psychology, introduced us to several key partners in Tucson.
Linda Hardy is the program director at Tu Nidito Children and Family Services, a philanthropic organization that provides comfort, hope and support for children and families whose lives have been impacted by a serious medical condition or death. Tucson-based Lorna Soroko is a lawyer and award-winning writer who worked for Twentieth Century Fox and Warner Bros Jeannette Maré is the founder and executive director of Ben’s Bells Project, a nationally recognized organization that inspires, educates and motivates people to realize the impact of intentional kindness. Scottsdale resident Gail Bradley serves on the Arizona Humanities board and is a vice-president and senior wealth strategist at Northern Trust.
These four incredibly talented, experienced and well-connected women are determined to create serious positive changes in Arizona, and we are honored that they have chosen to partner with Narrative 4.
One of our goals is to become part of Tucson’s pending city initiative: The International Campaign for Compassionate Cities. Our vision and mission are wonderful counterparts to this enterprising push for citizens to take responsibility for igniting the compassion of the general community to care for each other and the the well-being of all members of the community – from birth to death.
This is a fantastic story and we enthusiastically encourage you to join the Narrative 4 Arizona journey!
