Amplifying Our Voices
There are words that hurt us – and words that make us whole.
Join Women In Transition (WIT) for an evening of poetry to heal, share your stories and to speak out about violence, trauma, healing, empowerment, and joy.
What did we survive? What keeps us going? Who holds us up? From where – or whom – do we draw our strength?
Amplifying Our Voices is a safe space for us to speak our truths and celebrate our strengths, with readings by:
Yolanda Wisher – Poet Laureate of Philadelphia
Husnaa Hashim – Youth Poet Laureate of Philadelphia
Trapeta Mayson – Host & Poet
Perry “Vision” DiVirgilio – Poet, Actor & Philadelphia Youth Poetry Movement (PYPM) Artistic Director
Courtney Bambrick – Poet, Educator & Poetry Editor of Philadelphia Stories Magazine
