“Project Twist-It is so important because it challenges the stigma of poverty by fostering both knowledge and understanding of others.
Communication matters when talking about poverty and no more so than the brilliant Project Twist-It who work tirelessly in order for it not to be defined by people who are prejudiced.
It is an open door where everyone is invited to walk through and talk about their experience of poverty, a safe room where they can tell their stories with dignity and positivity.”
“Poor people are lazy; they drain national resources. Why should we care about people on the dole? If only everyone were fully productive, we wouldn't need so many poverty-related services.
These are far-too-common beliefs and attitudes, whether overtly expressed or not. PTI, under the brilliant and dedicated leadership of Mary O'Hara, challenges these prevalent beliefs by engaging the populace in real narratives of real people, effectively humanizing the entire issue.
O'Hara's interviewing, writing, and communication skills need to be heard and seen, far and wide!”
