EVENT DATE: May 17, 2012
I am collaborating with Gay and Lesbian Student Services of Western New York to plan a poetry slam for LGBT Youth and Allies. The slam will take place on May 17th.
A location has yet to be decided, details will be updated as the planning solidifies.
We would like to give educational and cash prizes to our winners, most of whom will be lower socioeconomic youth of color.
Your donation will help fund this community event that will allow youth to express themselves in a public forum and be valued for their writing outside of classroom walls. This is an event that is supporting youth, new literacies, and the Buffalo community.
