Ryan Keesling, Founder and Executive Director of Free Write Arts & Literacy, and Jaren Hampton aka R.L. Exclusive, a poet and Free Write alumnus, join Jesse and Jill on the MorningAMp to talk about Free Write and their event Lessons in the Cycle, featuring youth voices and verses on best practices in violence prevention and trauma-informed care.
