Just Poetry (Open Mic)

#JustPoetry An #OpenMic dedicated to Sharing, Healing, and Building. Hosted by Justice That Works partnering with Fair Trade Cafe a safe landing and meeting spot for so many of us in the community.

#JTW Heard the call at our last open mic event in response to the Police Violence at the Anti-Trump Rally downtown Phoenix, when we were asked not to wait until another traumatic event happened to facilitate an open mic dedicated to healing and community power. Just Poetry will be a monthly open mic happening on the #ThirdThursday of every month at #FairTrade

Free & All Ages!

Signups will start at 6 pm in the Courtyard at Fair Trade

Signups will remain open so that people may come and go as they please and we wi...ll do our best to ensure that as many people want to get on stage will have the opportunity to do so.

Special Guests:
Divine Valentin
& Trey Sequeira who has been working with JTW as a member of our #DivestInvest campaign

There are many ways to deal with trauma, anger, frustration, fear, pain, or rage; as well as, hope, vision, love, truth, honor, and justice. Writing, story telling, poetry, spoken word, hip-hop, and visual art are some of them. Sharing those works of art is another.

This will also be a space for those who do not wish to share, but would appreciate seeing and/or hearing others processing through what has and continues to happen to our People and our Peoples responses to that oppression.

Come and hang out, share space with us, eat some good food, and let's build the world we want together.
