The Power of Poetry

Poetry has long been a force for personal growth, expression, and social justice. In celebration of poetry month we bring you some of the most compelling voices from the world of books, television, and cinema reading a favorite poem in support of our mission.  We are also proud to highlight two of our students who will also share their favorite poem.

Literacy Partners is an adult literacy program. Parents come to our programs to transform their lives and create a brighter future for their children. With our free classes, workshops and educational media, parents enhance their literacy and language skills for success in today’s world, while building the skills they need to better promote their children’s healthy development, social emotional growth, and school readiness. 

We present this public reading in celebration of the power of poetry to heal, connect, and inspire us to advocate for a more just and equitable world. #WordsShapeOurWorld


This program has concluded and is available below for viewing now through May 12th. If you’d like to donate to advance racial and social justice through literacy education, please submit your contribution below. Donate $100 or more and receive a free bundle of poetry books.

Program begins at 15:00
