Youth. Speaks. Seattle.

we stand for being hella loud, for being unapologetically infinite,
for liberation of self.
open mics. writing circle. poetry slams. Y.s.s. is a space for young people to think critically, write honestly, and reclaim their creativity so the next generation of revolutionaries can emerge. YOUTH! RIGHT! NOW! IS! THE! TRUTH! RIGHT! NOW!
