There are no shows going on at Black Sheep tonight – howEVER there is an event going on on the University of Illinois campus in the WUIS building that we are once again teaming up with The Prairie Center Against Sexual Assault and WUIS for. It’s being called “Embrace Your Voice” – A communal expression of support for survivors of sexual assault. Tonight from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at the WUIS building a reception and open mic will be held. From the event description:

NPR Illinois will host a letter-writing station throughout the month of April, which will lead to this reception. The public is asked to contribute “survivor love letters” – anonymously written and addressed in support of those who have survived sexual assault. This will result in a community art exhibition of the letters at the gallery in the NPR Illinois station.

Open mic will begin at 5:30 PM. Those who wish to read will be signed up on a first come basis. Email rotwe2@uis.edu for more information.

Find a facebook event for Embrace Your Voice right here. The event is free and of course all ages.
