Arizona Storytellers: Liz Warren
KJZZ is partnering with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers project on the radio. Storytellers in Phoenix share their stories at live events in town. Some of the stories are about living here, some are not.
Liz Warren is from Gilbert, Ariz., and when she was 16 years old she joined the dress code committee at Gilbert High School to change the outdated rules.
After surveying the students and their parents, it was clear that many people wanted to embrace the change. But before the proposal was brought to the Governing School Board, an article came out in the Gilbert Round-Up.
Liz Warren is a writer, teacher, the director of the Storytelling Institute at South Mountain Community College and one of the founders of the Arizona Storytellers project.
You can hear more stories like this at our next night of live storytelling, Wed., March 4, at the Phoenix Art Museum. To learn more about the Arizona Storytellers project or how to participate in one of our upcoming nights, visit storytellers.azcentral.com.
