Established in 2016, Just Poetry is an annual event that brings together individuals from diverse perspectives and experiences to explore “justice” through poetry/spoken word. In general, the purpose of the event is to grow awareness of issues of crime and in/justice affecting residents of Detroit/metro-Detroit by creating a space for artists, community members, and criminal justice professionals to share, reflect, and connect.
