Their experience and passion for art and social justice activism have brought them together in diverse collaborations since 2009. They are ecstatic and overjoyed to hit the TYPS stage together for their first-ever co-feature. The TYPS has become a significant part of their chosen family––it only fits that they are the featured poets at the Third Annual Family Slam!
