Thanks to your participation in Step 1, we’ve heard your story and uncovered some critical challenges faced by you. However, do you really know what others in your community are experiencing?

However, we encourage you to tell us who you are and where you live so that Hatch International can better understand the different experiences of communities across our country. Finally, if you participate in step three and you share your contact information with us when submitting an idea, we will be sure to contact you before sharing your idea with our network of partners, influencers, and lawmakers.

Do I have to share my story on both your facebook page and the website?

No, you may choose to use one platform to share your story.

I shared my story. What’s next? Can I expect to receive a response?
