Love Poems for Bresha is a national action coordinated with local activists in partnership with FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture, an artist collective dedicated to building public healing spaces for survivors. Help us build a powerful space of love for all Black girls fighting to live in a world that doesn’t see us, and send love to Bresha. Bring your favorite poems and songs of love, joy and survival by Black women, non-binary and femme identified writers to share.
There will also be a letter writing station for those who want to send messages to the Ohio Prosecutor demanding that charges against Bresha be dropped, and also write messages of support to Bresha. Come and help us send love to Bresha.
