Embrace Your Voice - Reception and Open Mic

NPR Illinois will host a letter-writing station throughout the month of April, which will lead to this reception. The public is asked to contribute "survivor love letters" - anonymously written and addressed in support of those who have survived sexual assault. This will result in a community art exhibition of the letters at the gallery in the NPR Illinois station.
Open mic will begin at 5:30 PM. Those who wish to read will be signed up on a first come basis. Email rotwe2@uis.edu for more information or to sign up.
