Today's holiday, honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is of importance to many people for many different reasons. From the policy and legislative changes that were spurred by the work of Dr. King to the less tangible social implications that are still reverberating, his impact cannot be overestimated.
Part homage to the power of the spoken word and part tribute to Dr. King, YADC participant Shamaya was featured on 95.5 FM's The Touch radio show this past Saturday. She is a poet and has been writing and rapping in the community for several years. We are proud of her for representing our program and having the courage to share her work over the radio.
Please tune into 95.5 on Saturday afternoons between noon and 2pm to hear our very own Education Coordinator, Angela, on The Touch.
If you would like more information about the show, please contact us on the 'Contact' page above.
Participants of YADC, community members with an interest in restorative and therapeutic justice or diversion programs, and YADC staff are encouraged to write posts to be submitted to the blog. Anyone is welcome to inquire as to the process of becoming published.
