We are living in challenging and unprecedented times. The global COVID-19 pandemic and protests against racism have left many feeling anxious, angry and scared. Speak Your Peace, an initiative from Columbus Public Health’s Columbus CARE Coalition, is seeking submissions that show how members of the Columbus community are responding to the times we’re living in through forms of artistic and peaceful expression.

Anyone in the community – no matter their background or age – can share how they have been coping during these historic times by using the form below to submit examples of poetry, writing, photography, painting, dance or other forms of expression. If your work is selected, you will be notified and it will be shared with Columbus Public Health’s audience through our website and social media pages.* For questions about this form or the Speak Your Peace initiative, please contact Marian Stuckey at MAStuckey@columbus.gov.
