Cheeraz Gormon is fierce and fearless; giving voice to communities who ache to be heard, ache to be understood and ache to be healed. When she speaks the raw-est of emotions rise and are felt, deeply; and they must be felt, because what she expresses is mighty and necessary.
-Mich Hancock, Co-Founder and Advocate, TEDxGatewayArch

Cheeraz Gormon is a Truth-Teller. Her words – whether through poetry or prose – leave no space for ease or complacency. They cut sharp as a razor at one twist; bring solace and healing at the next turn. Gormon makes us look at ourselves – at our pasts, our presents, and the ties that bind us – with an unflinching precision that is as liberating as it is discomforting.
-Jean Allman, Director, Center for the Humanities, Washington University in St. Louis.
It was a pleasure to have Cheeraz Gormon deliver a DreamTalk at the Newburgh Dream Center.
