To Write Love on Her Arms
To Visit College Campuses Around The Country
Conversation with founder, Jamie Tworkowski
“We’re excited about the opportunities we’re getting to bring the TWLOHA message to universities. We talk about things that people tend not to talk about, and we’re trying to meet people where they are. With each of these nights, it’s an attempt at an honest conversation, an attempt at introducing the possibilities of hope and help and community. More than anything, we’re trying to let people know that they’re not alone and we’re trying to start a conversation that continues long after we leave town,” says To Write Love On Her Arms founder, Jamie Tworkowski.
WHAT: To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide.
