Our first ever #WeAllGrow Summit Slam Poetry Hour sponsored by @curatedbyfb and @weareunidosus was a success and left us wanting more because these women's words were theirs, but they were also ours.

Emceed by the phenomenal force that is Nicoletta de la Brown, #WeAllGrow Summit attendees delighted in the words of Yesika Star, Melania-Luisa Marte, Kim Mercado and Melissa Lozada-Oliva.

What was particularly impactful about being in the room while these talented Latina poets shared their work was how much their words and individual experiences resonated with everyone. In speaking their truths, they reminded us of our communal truths and how our experiences as Latinas may not be understood by those outside of our community, but within our community we get it, we SO get it.

To see these women on stage, doing their thing and connecting with everyone there was an unforgettable experience. If you were there you know what we mean. If you weren’t there, we got ya!
