POETIC Named "Non-Profit Team Of The Year" By D CEO Magazine

“When we look up at the future and what that looks like, five or 10 years from now, we see this as a national movement. You’ll frequently see us use the hashtag “until every girl is equally valued,” and that’s truly what we stand for. I think there are a lot of pieces to us truly realizing that in our lifetime – and realizing that not just in Dallas, and beyond.”
