Find Your Own Story
In 2009, Kirk Latimer and Gabriel Giron, founded Speak It Forward Inc. As pioneers of spoken word performance poetry, Kirk and Gabriel intimately understand the importance of diving deep into yourself, finding your voice, refining your voice and sharing your voice with others. Speak It Forward Inc. aims to teach all members of their community these skills.
Every voice holds value, whether it comes from the head of the table or behind prison bars.
When we understand that our worldview is shaped by who we are and our personal experiences, we are better able to change the narrative we have about others and ourselves. In a world that regularly feels broken, sharing deeply personal stories with one another allows us to build seemingly unlikely bridges.
It is through the sharing of our very human experiences that we are able to build authentic relationships among people and community organizations. It is these human experiences that connect us and show us that we are not separate at all. Every voice holds value, whether it comes from the head of the table or behind prison bars.
