WE CAN BE THE CHANGE: Working to End Violence in Our City
 
Please join us for a poetry reading and community dialogue, featuring Free Minds Poet Ambassadors, Leon Harris of ABC News, and other special guests!

Be a part of the solution by participating in a community dialogue about causes and potential solutions to violence in our city, and hear poetry and first-hand experiences from the poets featured in The Untold Story of the Real Me: Young Voices from Prison. This literary journal collects poetry by Free Minds members along with personal essays from young men who are now home from prison and overcoming the odds. Proceeds will support our 10,000 Journals For Hope campaign to provide copies of The Untold Story of the Real Me to schools, juvenile detention centers, and federal prisons.

Light refreshments will be provided.
