Get Lit (GetLit.org) is a Los Angeles-based education nonprofit founded in 2006 by author and educator Diane Luby Lane, to increase literacy, empower youth and energize communities through poetry and visual media. Providing the creative outlet, community and work experience that transforms students into activists, scholars and stars.
Monique Mitchell is a poet, ghostwriter and lover, and has been published by The New York Times, Cultural Weekly and various print publications across Los Angeles. Her time with Get Lit – Words Ignite taught her the power of the spoken word to birth new worlds. Mitchell was invited to perform for the California State Senate in defense of SB 933, which secured $50M for arts education across California. She has collaborated with the likes of Cass Bird, Cara Delevingne, Maria Shriver, Ghana’s CEO of the Decade, Freedom Jacob Caesar and Puma.
Launched in early 2020, FOX’s #TVForAll campaign provides a space to highlight, champion and celebrate diverse voices across FOX Entertainment.
