100 Thousand Poets | Musicians for Change is on the rise THIS WEEKEND!




viewfile?guid=397169740B755D029BBA478F3A
100 Thousand Poets | Musicians for Change is here!

This weekend, over 500 events in over 100 countries takes place simultaneously, creating the largest POETRY READING in the world! The grassroots movement, founded in Santa Rosa, CA, launching the question into cyberspace,  "can I get 100 thousand poets for change? do people want change?".  That query was answered with a loud YES from the people!
Here we are at year 3 since its inception... the world wants change as collective community! There are no borders, lines creating fictitious boundaries on the land... we are all brother and sister human being. 

That's the beauty of life. We exist, therefore, we can help each other in our collective advocacy for change.  Thank you to Stanford University for archiving our efforts around the world and solidifying the legacy of this movement!

The Los Angeles Poet Society will launch 2 events this weekend! Details below!
