Register here and join us for a Sidwell Friends evening with the Free Minds Poet Ambassadors. Free Minds Book Club works with incarcerated persons using the medium of poetry. Tonight several formerly incarcerated Poet Ambassadors will share poems and experiences with us before encouraging participants to engage directly by commenting on the poems of currently incarcerated poets (through an application you can download to your iPad or computer). In the Quaker tradition of advocating for humane treatment for incarcerated individuals we are pleased to invite you to join us. Please register in advance and we will email the Zoom link to you the day before our event. More information about Free Minds write nights is here.
