WHEN: Sunday January 15, 12-2pm

Be part of a national wave of spoken word, poetry, and storytelling with Writers Resist, a day writers all over America are having open readings to speak out for democracy and social justice. All ages, all styles, all languages, all welcome. Bring your friends and get your turn at the mic. “History has its eyes on you!” More information: #WritersResistDMV #WriteOurDemocracy, Writers Resist DMV on Facebook

The event is FREE, but donations will be taken on-site for 826DC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write.

826DC helps students to write their own paths forward. Through dynamic educational programs here in DC, children and youth are equipped with the writing skills that are necessary for success in and beyond the classroom. 826DC provides drop-in tutoring, field trips, after-school workshops, in-school programs, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications.
