Share your stories on Saturday, January 30th, 10:00am-11:30am, 1430 Carswell St. Baltimore, Md 21218. Refreshments will be provided. RSVP here. Between January 23-31, 2016, individuals and organizations across the U.S. will sign up to host story circles as part of The People’s State of the Union. Every January, the President delivers a State of the Union address highlighting important issues from the past year and suggesting priorities for the coming year. The People’s State of the Union is an invitation to supplement the President’s stories with our own. #PSOTU2016
We will each tell a three minute story about one of these prompts that we will share with the PSOTU poets who write a People’s State of the Union from all of our stories that they will perform on February 20:
- Share a story you think the next President absolutely needs to hear about what is happening in Baltimore City and how is it impacting schools in your community.
- Share a story about a time you felt a sense of belonging —or the opposite—in a school and/or community in Baltimore.
See Poetic Address 2015 here.

Join us for dinner and stories about problems of practice in schools and classrooms.
