Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world! Throughout time, poets have been movers and shakers–rabble-rousers, protestors, revolutionaries. They have been the voice of the voiceless, oppressed, downtrodden with their carefully crafted words that carry so much weight. Poetic words are honest, heartfelt, courageous. Poets look to send out their healing ripples of change in a way that will hopefully resonate with the masses.
In the wake of the current rebellions and resistance, it is time to come together to use our words to inspire and support the warriors who have taken to the streets to speak out against racism and inequality.
Are you in?

Poetry in the face of global violence and political turmoil is an act of protest. Responding to all that is going on through verses that look at the way we crash and clash, as well as the redemption available in the human experience, is salve for the soul.
