I am super honored and excited to announce Button Poetry’s brand new performance series Act Up!, which will attempt to create a bridge between art and advocacy.
Our first event will explore the alarming and prevalent issue of sex trafficking in Minnesota. Featuring Mama Mosaic Theater for Women, dance, live art, local youth poets, and me! All proceeds to benefit Tubman, a multi-service agency that offers a continuum of healing and recovery to individuals and families struggling with domestic violence, sexual exploitation, substance abuse, mental illness and maintaining independence.
I want to stress the purpose of this event is not to pass any judgement or persecution. We aren’t here to “fix” anyone; we’re trying to serve, understand, and empower. I hope you’ll join us! #actup
