Our Mission

We strive to create a world in which all people, regardless of race, religion, gender identity or class can live together in the 'full poetry of existence' empowered to celebrate their own uniqueness and speak their truth. 

Our mission is to raise consciousness about social justice issues impacting marginalized communities through our arts-based, anti-racist curriculum, theatrical productions, poetry workshops and other programs. 

Because your story matters.
