SPIRIT AWAKENING FOUNDATION (SAF) presents its annual VOICES OF THE UNHEARD/L.O.V.E spoken word and theatrical performance hosted by Rev. Michael Beckwith at Skirball Cultural Center, Thursday, November 1, 2018 from 7 – 9 p.m. This event features the writings of incarcerated and at-risk children and young adults in the Los Angeles County juvenile justice system.

The powerful, heart-pounding and soul-searching words are written by our most vulnerable youth and performed through song, dance, poetry and storytelling. Many of these children have been deeply wounded, and from their suffering, have begun lashing out. It is our goal to heal these children so they can grow up to better themselves and their communities. With what it takes to incarcerate one child in the juvenile justice system, SAF is able to implement an entire year of holistic programming for 60 students! By amplifying the voices of unheard youth in Los Angeles, we offer them another way to discover who they truly are – and we give the world a chance to understand them and celebrate them. This year, SAF honors longtime Board Member Bertrand Christian Esq., Actor and Comedian Debra Wilson, and The California Wellness Foundation, with CEO Judy Belk.

SAF is a non-profit dedicated to helping youth realize their spiritual identity through meditation, creative writing, improvisation, visual arts and mentorship to build character and raise self-esteem, one child at a time. We are a community of teachers, mentors and philanthropists who help deliver arts-based restorative programs to at-risk and incarcerated youth in the greater Los Angeles area. With programs hailed as “creative, innovative and powerful” by the California State Department of Justice, SAF has been a pioneer in restorative justice and juvenile delinquency prevention.

Presented by Spirit Awakening Foundation.

O MATTER WHERE THEY COME FROM, WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THEM, AND WHAT THEY’VE DONE, THERE IS A STRONG, CLEAR, BEAUTIFUL, AND PURPOSEFUL LIFE IN EVERY INCARCERATED CHILD.
Voices of the Unheard is a yearly theatrical performance hosted by Spirit Awakening at which the public comes together to listen to and support them.

Featuring spoken word poetry, song, dance, and storytelling, the event showcases and celebrates the unedited voices of our most vulnerable citizens.

OVER 80% OF INCARCERATED JUVENILES ARE VICTIMS OF RAPE, MOLESTATION, OR SUBSTANCE-ADDICTED PARENTS OR GUARDIANS.

Many of these children are deeply wounded, and in their pain and misery, they lash out against their surroundings.

It’s our goal to heal those children so that they can grow up to better themselves and their communities. With what it takes to incarcerate one child in the juvenile justice system ($68,000), the Spirit Awakening Foundation is able to implement an entire year of holistic programming for 60 students!

By amplifying their voices, we give these children another chance to discover who they truly are — and we give the world a chance to understand them.
