Dear Friends and Writers,

The Los Angeles Poet Society is proud to organize the 3rd Annual 100 Thousand Poets for Change event in Los Angeles, CA!

100 Thousand Poets for Change is a global movement, grassroots in origin, spreading the message of truths in the need for change. As a planet we come together at the local level, organize our masses and show that we are not going to sit idle while our world seeps and weeps for change. 

(From the official press release by 100TPC Headquarters):

– September 28, 2013 marks the third annual global event for 100 Thousand Poets for Change, a grassroots organization that brings communities together to call for environmental, social, and political change within the framework of peace and sustainability. An event that began primarily with poet organizers, 100 Thousand Poets for Change has grown into an interdisciplinary coalition with year round events which includes musicians, dancers, mimes, painters and photographers from around the world.

Local issues are still key to this massive global event as communities around the world raise their voices on issues such as homelessness, global warming, education, racism and censorship,through concerts, readings, lectures, workshops, performances and other actions. But these locally focused events have taken on a more continuous and expansive form through the new disciplines represented this year. More and more organizers and participants of the one day, annual event are making plans to continue their actions after September 28. Many have formed groups in their cities that will continue to work year round towards the goals their community seeks.

“Peace and sustainability are major concerns worldwide, and the guiding principles for this global event,” said Michael Rothenberg, Co-Founder of 100 Thousand Poets for 
Change. “We are in a world where it isn't just one issue that needs to be addressed. A common ground is built through this global compilation of local stories, which is how we 
create a true narrative for discourse to inform the future.”  --
