Let Your Voice be Heard - Poetry Slam Fundraiser

The YWCA Princeton NEXT GEN Board will hold its first poetry slam fundraiser to raise funds for a speaker series dedicated to racial and social justice in 2018. Join us or participate as a performer in this exciting event that will break boundaries and build bridges within the greater Mercer County community.  Dowload the event flyer here.

Breaking Boundaries, Building Bridges

A poetry slam is typically a performance of poetry that engages the community and provides a platform for voices to be heard beyond social, cultural, political and economic barriers. This is an opportunity for adults within the Mercer County area to share stories of empowerment, passions, struggles, accomplishments, hopes for the future and much more in a unique and artistic way with an audience dedicated to the YWCA Princeton’s mission of empowering women and eliminating racism.

Performer Applications

Interested in participating in the first YWCA Princeton NEXT GEN Board poetry slam? Performer applications will be accepted until Friday, October 13, 2017. Prize(s) will be awarded to the top performer(s). Information on eligibility, performance topics can be found in the online application.  Questions about the application should be directed to
