Today at 6:30pm Homeboy Industries is hosting Voices of the Heart, a youth poetry event. For the past couple of weeks my fellow co-worker Pascual Torres and couple of his friends have been working with youth and staff members on sharing their life struggles through poetry. Those of you who live in Los Angeles would not want to miss this amazing event. There is going to be some amazing poetry that will be read tonight. Father G, Luis Rodriguez, author of Always Running and Orland Bishop will be speaking at the event support our youth.
Pascual has stated that the event is about having the space to transform our trauma instead of transmitting it. It is going to be an event where the youth and staff members will be able to use poetry to not only write about experiences that have impact them but through the process start healing those wounds.
Please come and witness the amazing event that will take place tonight at 6:30pm. Our address is 130 W. Bruno St., Los Angeles, CA 90012. More information can be found in the flyer.
