I’m reaching out on behalf of Every Texan, a Texas-based social justice organization that advocates for people-centered public policy, to ask if you might be able to connect us with one of your artists for a virtual event we’re hosting on September 20th.

We will be honoring Ford Foundation President Darren Walker during our annual Legacy Award ceremony, and we are looking for a poet or spoken word artist (preferably from or based in Texas) to speak about social or racial justice during the ceremony. We have budgeted $500 for this performance, and we would be sure to feature the artist in our event promotion on social media.

I greatly appreciate your guidance and hope we get the opportunity to amplify the great work you’re doing.
