If your words had the power

If your words had the power
to heal our wounded communities and
our own hearts...
We invite you to join a
bilingual writing circle
designed to lift every voice in
the fight against injustice,
inequality and hatred.
BRIDGES TO JUSTICE
meeting every Thursday evening
Teatro Yerbabruja Arts Center
63 Carlton Avenue,
Central Islip, NY, 11722
Thursdays 6:30 to 8:30
Come once or twice, to tell a particular story that needs to be told, or come
every week to pursue a book-length project. Add your voice to our Community Portrait in Words, celebrating our histories, personal and collective, while
using memoir as a tool for action to change hearts, minds and policies.
Write with recent immigrants, college students, women in re-entry, neighborhood elders,
organizational activists and leaders, so that together we can shape our words to change
the system, protecting our homes, our children and our freedom, one story at a time. This
workshop is offered free of charge thanks to funding from NY State Council on the Arts,
an Omnibus grant from Suffolk County through the Office of Legislator Kara Hahn, and
the National Endowment for the Arts.

Si sus palabras tuvieran el poder
de curar nuestras comunidades heridas y nuestros
corazones…
Les invitamos a unirse a un grupo
de escritura bilingüe con la meta
de elevar cada voz en la lucha
contra la injusticia, la desigualdad, y el odio.
BRIDGES TO JUSTICE
reunión cada jueves por la tarde
Teatro Yerbabruja Arts Center
63 Carlton Avenue,
Central Islip, NY, 11722
Jueves 6:30 to 8:30
Ven a contar una historia específica que necesita ser escuchada o para trabajar con fin
de hacer tu libro. Agregue su voz a nuestro “retrato comunitario en palabras”, celebrando nuestras historias, personales y colectivas, mientras usamos “memoir” como herramienta para la acción de cambiar corazones, mentes, y política.
Escriba con inmigrantes, estudiantes universitarios, mujeres recién salidas de la cárcel,
envejecientes, activistas y líderes de la comunidad, para que juntos podamos moldear
nuestras palabras para cambiar el sistema, protegiendo muestras casas, nuestros niños, y
nuestra libertad, una historia a la vez. Ofrecemos este taller sin cargo gracias a los fondos del NY State Council on the Arts, un Omnibus grant de Suffolk County por la oficina de la Legislator Kara Hahn, y el National Endowment for the Arts.
