In the past year, the world has seen how spoken word and poetry can be a powerful tool for advocacy, a way of communicating and expressing pain and joy, and an outlet for healing.
On January 20, 2021, the world listened as Amanda Gorman’s presented her moving inaugural poem, which moved us to reflect on our world and democracy from the eyes of a young activist.
Democrats Abroad Toronto is excited to partner with CANVAS Arts Action Programs (CANVAS), a Toronto-based non-profit that works to prevent gender-based and sexual violence, homophobia and transphobia for a special spoken word performance. CANVAS uses interactive, arts programs to educate on gender equity, consent, and LGBTQ2S+ inclusion in schools, summer camps, communities and workplaces.
Join us for this special performance, open to members and their families of all ages!
This event will be part of the overall Democrats Abroad Global LGBTQ+ Caucus Virtual Pride 12-hour Marathon. Click here to learn more about various activities, celebrations, stories, and films being streamed across the globe for this exciting day-long event.
