Downtown Inglewood's Savoy Entertainment Center was buzzing with reunion-esque excitement and camaraderie on Thursday, January 30th, 2014 for Teach For America - Los Angeles Alumni Leadership & Engagement team's first-ever Story Slam. Over 150 LA alumni, district leaders from LAUSD, parents of slammers, parents of students, partner organizations, and friends packed the house for an incredible evening spotlighting 12 alumni who slammed stories from the classroom and beyond. Liz Dwyer (LA '98) hosted the epic affair while Rudy Acosta (NYC '03), Wes Farrow (LA '06), Stephanie Widmer (LA '07), Brooklynn Edwards (Delta '09), Vajezatha Payne-Hines (Houston '92), Lila Kalaf (LA '10), Carrington Bester (Houston '11), Jose Francisco Moreno (LA '03), Hoang Pham (LA '11), Eric DeSobe (LA '01), and Chaleese Norman (LA '02) delivered performances that inspired us, brought us together, caused us to reflect, made us laugh, and gave us hope. Guests also enjoyed a buffet dinner featuring soul food while listening to tales that touched their souls from the many voices that make up our diverse and amazing community.
