Hibakusha Stories began as an all-volunteer organization.  Because of the generosity of the board of directors of our parent organization, Youth Arts New York, and individual donors and foundations, we have been able to pay some of our key people.  It is our desire to provide right livelihood to our team because we believe this is the kind of work the world should support.  Much of our work is done with circle process where each person has the opportunity to speak his or her own truth.  It was through this process that Clifton Truman Daniel, son of U.S. President Harry S. Truman, and our guest hibakusha gained one another’s trust.
