2021 Voices of Change: Justice for All Video Contest
Liberty Hill Celebrated National Poetry Month this past April by amplifying the voices of leaders of color and those most impacted by systemic injustice.
Protest poetry has existed for decades and is a powerful tool to highlight the faults within existing systems and circumstances. At times of great societal unrest, poems and spoken word performances can reflect the views of those closest to the issues, as well as people at large. Liberty Hill launched our Justice for All campaign to amplify the voices, and support the work, of grassroots youth and community leaders fighting to make Justice for All a reality.
We invited youth from Arts for Healing and Justice Network, Anti-Recidivism Coalition, Youth Mentoring Coalition, Amazing Grace Conservatory, and Share Fest to tell us what justice for all means to them. Their voices remind us why we’re in this fight and continue to leave us inspired. We also highlighted their voices and poems at our recent Upton Sinclair Homecoming Celebration at the Skirball Cultural Center.
