Community Healing Starts with Youth
Minor Disturbance is an independent literary arts organization dedicated to helping Colorado youth find voice through the mediums of poetry and performance. It is our belief that every person's story is important regardless of: age, race, zip code, disability, religion, socioeconomic status, gender and sexuality. By youth for youth, our ethos of mentorship and leadership is: young people create the most equitable space to affirm their expressed agencies and achieve sustainable community growth. The longevity of our organization is simple: youth construct relevant curriculum to facilitate self awareness that leads to individual, collective, and/or social change. By learning to understand each other through our individual stories we can help to cultivate collective futures in the classroom and beyond.
