ELEVATE (v.) raise or lift to a higher position

ELEVATE is a showcase of Black and Brown youth voices uplifting one another through the art of spoken words. This project shares untold and unseen work centered around local and national historical events, the impact of systemic racism and individuals' personal experiences and passions. Most importantly, ELEVATE is the celebration and empowerment of the people. This event was created for the community, by the community.
