About Us

OPEN DOORS supports the creativity and leadership of people who have been harmed by gun violence and inspires action for safer, more just communities. Through storytelling, spoken word, hip-hop, and digital art OPEN DOORS members break down barriers around age, race, class and ability. This past year, OPEN DOORS members met with hundreds of youth living in high-crime neighborhoods, published the poetry anthology Wheeling & Healing, released the album OPEN DOORS Reality Poets Vol. 1, and co-wrote the play FADE, which premiered at the Main Street Theatre on Roosevelt Island. We are looking for a media-savvy instructor to help amplify our message of realness, resilience and healing.
