Be Bold: Share our Poet Warriors' voices far and wide!

Emily Southerton (Mississippi Delta 2010 Teach For America alumni) created the Poet Warriors Project, an initiative to get an initiative to get middle school students around the country reading and writing poetry. Our Poet Warriors speak the truth about their communities. They use their own words, cadences, images, ideas to tell the truth about their lives.

Dream.Rise.Do. Play

Fifty years ago Martin Luther King, Jr. charged Americans to take radical and urgent action towards a very basic dream--equality. Equality attained not just by changing hearts and minds, but by transforming the societal structures at the root of injustice into the very genesis of equity.

It's a dream unrealized for past generations, but for our children, it's not far from reach. With the power to see it through are:

- Teachers, who will help our children DREAM beyond all perceived limits
- Teachers, who will help our children RISE to every challenge
- Teachers, who will DO whatever it takes to prove to our children that a dream can be more
