In recognition of World Sickle Cell Day, which falls on June 19, 2021, Global Blood Therapeutics, Inc. (GBT) and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. (SCDAA) launched “Lift Every Voice to Shine the Light on Sickle Cell” – a contest that will feature original spoken word pieces to raise awareness of sickle cell disease (SCD). The contest, which aims to elevate the voices and experiences of people living with SCD and their caregivers, is presented by Sickle Cell Speaks, GBT’s SCD education campaign that highlights authentic stories of those living with SCD to dispel misconceptions about the disease.
Spoken word poetry is an art form rooted in traditions of storytelling to convey compelling messages and personal experiences. People living with SCD and their caregivers are invited to sign up to submit videos of themselves performing original spoken word pieces about their experience with SCD. Participants must sign up by May 24, 2021, and be U.S. residents.
