A Love Letter to "Me" Open Mic Hosted by Tatiana Figueroa Ramirez
As folks living in a world built to break us if we do not fit into a box, self-love is something we must teach our bodies through every day practice, positive affirmations, and acts of love to ourselves. We must relearn our power, beauty, and light. No matter our identities, we must affirm our value. Poetry and art is one way to do this. Let us elevate the various parts of us that have been silenced or minimized to truly celebrate our truths and our authentic selves. Come ready to share a piece that is a love story to you and your people
