Covid-19 Statement

Kiane Ink never imagined in 2019 after hosting our 9th annual Gathering: Open Mic with a Cause that we would be forced to take a 2-year hiatus due to a pandemic!  The last 24 months have certainly embodied the phrase unprecedented times.  From a global medical crisis, heinous racial injustices and a tumultuous governmental administration – we have endured truly trying times.  Unfortunately, the presence and impact of the pandemic persists as we enter a 3rd year.
