Slam Richmond sends a team to Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Festival/Competition every year paying for everything out of pocket. This year, however, the pockets are empty. We have witnessed our program take youth who came from rough homes, a lot of shame; and on their way in the wrong direction turn completely around and do wonderful things with their lives and work towards bettering others. By donating to our Indiegogo campaign, you assist in the continuity of this program and help five youth poets for yet another year see the world and the necessity of their voices in it. If you are unable to donate, please share and spread the word. We greatly appreciate it.
