AWARD-WINNING ACTRESS & ACTIVIST JANE FONDA SET TO PARTICIPATE IN A SPECIAL POETRY READING DURING

LAUNCH PARTY FOR  GET LIT’S GROUNDBREAKING POETRY SHARING PLATFORM: UNI(VERSE) ON DECEMBER 11, 2021

Los Angeles, CA- December 6, 2021 -  Diane Luby Lane, Founder of Get Lit - Words Ignite, the Los Angeles-based education nonprofit started in 2006 to increase literacy, empower youth, and energize communities through poetry and visual media, announced today that the 15th annual Get Lit Gala this year will be a Launch Party for Uni(verse). The event will take place virtually on December 11, 2021, with award winning actress and activist Jane Fonda set to participate in a very special reading of the UNI(VERSE) Launch Poem, created through hundreds of globally submitted verses as part of Get Lit’s 1,000 Verses / $1,000,000 Campaign.

Get Lit is transforming the lives of young people worldwide through classic and spoken word poetry. Through specialized curriculums, the program provides a creative outlet, community, and real-life work experience, transforming students into activists, scholars, and stars. The Uni(verse) Launch Party will introduce Get Lit’s brand new, one-of-a-kind poetry sharing platform Uni(verse), the world's first interactive poetry platform for the classroom and youth community. Uni(verse) is based on the award-winning and impactful poetry, literacy, and empowerment curriculum that Get Lit has always provided, but the platform now allows students worldwide the ability to access the program online and to exchange ideas within and outside of school.
