Arts for Action: Amplifying Community Voices for Healing, Justice & Health Equity

April 17, 4:00 pm6:00 pm PDT

Arts for Action for Healing, Justice, and Health Equity - Featured Poet: Gabriel Ramirez

Dear BPH Community,

Join us for Arts for Action: Amplifying Community Voices for Healing, Justice & Health Equity,  an action-oriented open mic and community discussion presented in collaboration with  the Museum of the African Diaspora, UC Berkeley School of Public Health and the BPH Diversity, Inclusion, Community & Equity (DICE) group. We invite all members of the Berkeley community and beyond to join us for an evening of poetry and dialogue around public health and equity.

With the challenging past year we have had, we wanted to create a space to use art as a communication tool for healing, justice, and health equity. We welcome all creative students, staff, faculty, and community members to sign up to perform poetry or another form of expression of your choosing!

Want to perform? Please sign up here and we will contact you to confirm your spot in the lineup. We welcome everyone to come listen and engage in meaningful discussion.

Get ready to dance with Bay Area joy! In addition to the poetry, we will have DJ Roza, a UC Berkeley alum, spin some tunes for us throughout the event. We will close out with community agreements of how art can be a communication tool to bring forth change.

Our featured poet, Gabriel Ramirez, is a nationally renowned Queer Afro-Latinx poet, activist, and teaching artist. His work has been featured in various spaces from the United Nations to the Apollo Theater. Learn more about Gabriel’s work here.

Join us for a night of poetry and arts in action! Bring your friends, family, and art lovers.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

If you have need any accommodations, please contact: am.jacobo@berkeley.edu

In Solidarity,
Your SPH Student Government (SPHSG)
