The Beat Within Poetry Reading and Celebration

Friday, May 3, 2019, 12:00 AM

Join us on for a celebration of voices from The Beat Within, a national publication of writing and artwork by incarcerated youth.
We'll be highlighting the stories from their weekly writing workshops inside the Alameda County Juvenile Justice Center, and beyond. 
Former Beat writers will share their strength and power with us through their stories, poems, and testimonies.
We're honored to also be featuring our special guest and longtime Beat supporter, Sheila Jordan, Alameda County's Superintendent of Schools Emerita. 
Appetizers and beverages will be provided.
Please RSVP for your FREE ticket(s) on The Beat Within's website: www.thebeatwithin.org.
We hope to see you there!
In partnership with The Beat Within and the Akonadi Foundation.
