“On Christmas Day brunch 2014 shortly after the Ferguson protests, my family and I listened to Fr. Steve Giljum relay the stories of the young men in his parish. He lamented that the love and strength of these youth would not be known, and that they didn’t have the right words to open the doors to their future schools and jobs. We started YourWords STL to empower our students and to open minds and bridge divides in this community through creative writing.”
