On Monday, November 16, we had the opportunity to present the pedagogy and principles of RunDSM to students in the School of Education at Iowa State University, and Movement 515 poets James, Jalesha, and Elhondra shared their truth and knowledge with future educators. Much love to the professors and students for allowing us to hold space together!
On Friday, October 30, Movement 515 poets Julio, Madison, and Russhaun had the opportunity to present at Drake University’s United Way kick-off event! We were humbled to share our voices with the faculty of DU, as well as spread awareness about the positive impact the United Way has on our programming and the community. Cheers!
On Friday, October 16, the poets of Movement 515 raised over $1000 for Youth Emergency Services and Shelter of Iowa (YESS) by sharing their truth to an audience of 400 people in Drake University’s Sheslow Auditorium. Many thanks to photographer Eduardo Arana for capturing the magic.
