WE RISE LA

Get Lit Poets led dozens of interactive workshops, conducted teen town halls, judged poetry contests, were the official hype team, spoke on panels, opened panels with poetic performances about mental health topics and Khamal Iwuanyanwu was the host and “Voice of God” for the week. He writes, “Thank you so much to the Task Force team and every volunteer/worker who made We Rise 2019 such an amazing experience! I feel BLESSED to have had the chance to reach so many studets and adults with the important message of Mental Health Awareness! Lives were changed during those two weeks: Mine included.”
