M.E. Hart Speaks at DCRCC 40th Anniversary

Hart Learning Group is a proud community partner with the DC Rape Crisis Center. We support their efforts with training volunteers who work with hotline and advocacy clients.

Their 40th Anniversary Celebration, on October 20, 2012, was a celebration for clients, volunteers and community supporters.

The program began with these stirring remarks from Santa Molina-Marshall, Director of Counseling and Advocacy, “You are why we do what we do. We are here to honor you.”

It went on to feature poems, music, a drum circle, and a video, 40 Voices, that speaks of the desire to create a world without sexual violence.

I was honored to speak about our joint efforts using poetry as a creative tool for self-care and to help clients find their voice. I led a poetry flash-mob that got everyone up on their feet, and performed three poems – Truth Teller, Silent Thrivers, and Healing Walks.

It was an inspirational celebration of 40 years of service. We wish DCRCC continued success and look forward to continuing our community partnership with them.

Happy 40th Anniversary!
