Join Us For An Evening of Poetry

Join us for an evening of poetry for the public’s health, featuring readings from youth poets from SEI and APANO, Des Spicer-Orak, Dr. Ryan J. Petteway, and a special guest.

Poetry offers a necessary space for healing, resistance, and resurgence as public health engages pressing concerns like structural racism, racialized police violence, and climate change. It has the power to push boundaries and reimagine narratives of health equity—opening new dialogues that (re)center the voice and agency of those most burdened by health inequities.

In pursuit of racial and health justice, this event illuminates the necessity of both Stats *and* Stanzas to create public health futures of radical possibility.

Also featuring:

  • A guest DJ spinning tracks from The Public Health MixTape, curated by Sylvia Rivera
  • Filipino and Belizean food
  • Poetry Competition

Bring the kids. Bring the fam. Bring the homies. Bring the notepads. Bring the love.

Free Parking in the Schnitzer lot. The address for the Schnitzer lot is 2600 S. Moody Avenue. Free parking in this lot AFTER 5pm.
