Jourdan Imani Keith

Jourdan Imani Keith’s passion for building and healing human communities and ecological communities go hand in hand. She believes that connecting to the natural world is critical for restoring communities, reducing domestic violence, building relationships, and acknowledging and healing historical injustices.

A student of Sonia Sanchez, Keith is a poet, naturalist, educator, and storyteller whose poetry and stories blend the textures of political, personal and natural landscapes to offer voices from the margins of American lives. In art and nature she uses storytelling as a teaching tool. A 2006-2007 Seattle Poet Populist and a 2006 Jack Straw Writer, Keith is the founder and director of Urban Wilderness Project and a co-founder of Urban Wilderness Foundation. Her work introduces people of all ages and backgrounds to art and nature in urban Seattle and wilderness areas of the Pacific Northwest.
