The National Fair Housing Alliance, is hosting a special poetry slam to build interest in issues of justice, fairness and equity. America is the land of opportunity but not everyone has equal access to the doors of opportunity. While we have made great advancements, there is still more work to do. We have come as far as we have because of the great work and sacrifices of people like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Fannie Lou Hamer, Ida B. Wells, and Cesar Chavez. But we cannot rest on their laurels; there is more work to be done and more doors to open. 


This event is sponsored by: JPM Chase, Nationwide, Ocwen, and State Farm
