We’d love for an acolyte of Amanda Gorman to create a spoken word version of our We Can’t Wait

Updated: Feb 15, 2022

Amanda Gorman’s arrival into such broad public awareness has brought happiness and hope to everyone we talk with. She and other young voices, especially people of color, could have an incalculable impact on youth advocacy and poetry .

We are considering how to connect this with the project we’re developing at, to amplify intergenerational Voices for Our Future.

We’re assembling noteworthy links for Amanda Gorman and highlighting our favorites. If you can suggest others, please comment here and let us know at
