Milwaukee Stories, Inc., is a nonprofit media organization dedicated to spreading fact and understanding, providing a voice for marginalized communities and highlighting humanity. Why are we passionate about storytelling? In the words of our founder, Jabril Faraj:

“The many interactions I have shared with people of infinitely different origins and creeds have fostered in me an understanding of the inalienable value of human life. I have found that, regardless of ethnicity, social status and the confluence of other factors that make every person unique, in the end, everyone’s wants and needs are largely the same: love, a sense of purpose and a better world for their children.” Read more.

We hold in high regard the values of integrity and accountability, and acknowledge that organizations are responsible to the people who fund them. Because of this, Milwaukee Stories is supported solely by small, monthly contributions. We are immensely grateful for our supporters, whose contributions allow us to share the stories that are so often ignored.
