Your stories are your stories. We are asking for permission to publish your stories as part of The Stories of Us project and include the stories in our library in physical and digital formats.

If we take a photo of you or record your voice, this form also gives us permission to use the photo and recording as we need to.

Because this project will be available online and in physical format, it may be seen on social media. By signing this document, you are okay with having your stories posted on social media.

We will not give your contact name out to anyone. We may contact you about the project at some point.
