Youth Speaks is the name of a San Francisco Bay Area non-profit and spoken word youth organization. I love spoken word artists, and sub to some of them on YouTube, which is how I found Youth Speaks a long time ago. One of the their projects is called “The Bigger Picture”, and it’s all about type 2 diabetes. They have some FREAKING AMAZING spoken word artists that have done type 2 diabetes videos on their YouTube channel. Their videos are professionally produced, and it’s a great channel to get lost in for a few hours. Here are my favorite videos from Youth Speaks and The Bigger Picture. I invite you to follow the links below to learn more about them and work they do. For an in depth account of Youth Speaks, visit Diabetes Mine.
