100 Thousand Poets for Change is a global poetry event happening on September 24 with the goal of fostering solidarity among poets of the world and using our collective art to demonstrate against and to promote change in our local communities.
I will read Allen Ginsberg’s poems “Howl” and “America” as my way of protesting against the policies of Governor Rick Perry, particularly those that hurt education and help to promote the continued subjugation of women in Texas.
In addition, anyone else who would like to read as a form of protest is more than welcome. You can read from your own work, or the work of someone else.
