SPOKEN WORD | Embrace your voice

 

Take a stand against sexual assault this weekend during the “Singers, Poets and Activists Open Mic” event Friday, March 16, from 7-9:30 p.m. From 7-9 p.m., attendees are invited to perform their favorite or original songs, poems and thoughts surrounding the theme of “survivors, sexual/gender inequality and dreams of a better future.” In addition to the open mic session, this event will feature a #SurvivorLoveLetter station, where attendees will be encouraged to write letters of support to all survivors, themselves, or a survivor they know personally. The letters will be displayed at the NPR Illinois art gallery throughout the month of April, which is sexual assault and awareness month. Additionally, a sign-up sheet will be available to those who interested in reading their love letters on NPR Illinois WUIS during April. This event is hosted by the Prairie Center Against Sexual Assault in partnership with NPR Illinois and the Black Sheep Café. For more information, visit http://prairiecasa.org.
