For poet Ashley Finley, remaining quiet is not an option. Any idea seems possible, and every person’s voice must be heard.
Ashley creates visions through her piercing words, both uniting and healing. Her talent awakens not only power and fire, but the comfort and medicinal magic only found through truth. Ashley Finley is a performance poet who grew up in the diverse neighborhoods of Southern California. At a young age, she began to use poetry as a way to process her experiences as an adopted, African-American girl, growing up in the melting pot of Los Angeles. As an adult, Ashley strives to empower those in under-served and underrepresented communities. Ashley uses her platform on stage, and in her workshops to remind these communities that their stories and their voices are powerful and that through unity and passion, they can create change.
