“On The Line” - To Tell The Story Of Be The Change Youth Initiative
Take a look at the Instagram for Be The Change Youth Initiative here in Chattanooga - and you’ll read this description:
“Youth Should Be SEEN, HEARD, & LOVED. Our Mission: Reduce Youth Suicides through Mental Health Advocacy and Building a Stronger Community.”
The past few years, the nonprofit has made a difference through its Concerts for a Cause and other projects.
At the heart of Be the Change is the story of one family - and now, that family is collaborating with a filmmaker to tell that story in a documentary.
On Friday, starting at 6 PM, ClearStory Arts on Holtzclaw Avenue will host “On the Line” - an evening of music, storytelling and live painting to raise funds for the documentary.
Sydney Guerrette is the founder of Be the Change.
Her mom Deirdre Catlett is its operations director.
Rachael Porter is the filmmaker.
If you or someone you know is in crisis, please call, text or chat with the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline at 988 - or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741.
