Speak It Forward, Inc. (SiF) was co-founded by Gabriel Giron and Kirk Latimer in 2009. As innovators of spoken word edu-tainment, they intimately know the importance of diving deep into yourself, finding your voice, and learning how to share your story with power. SiF began its work by conducting local youth workshops to help share their platform with marginalized populations. Since its inception Speak It Forward’s programming and influence has not only grown, but now provides inspirational and educational curriculum and opportunities for people across the country for high school auditoriums to Fortune 500 companies, from National conferences to maximum security prisons.
