For many people, their voice is how they express themselves to the world.
It's a way to say, I exist and I am worthy!
But what happens when people loose their voice? When their circumstances are so burdensome and their daily lives are so difficult, that their voice is lost. How can they find their voice again?
That's where Write Around Portland comes into play. By working with low-income and under-served populations, Write Around Portland offers 8-10 free writing workshops to people all around Portland, to help them find their voice again.
