"Poetry. It's better than war!" Michael Rothenberg, cofounder of 100,000 Poets (and friends) for Change
NOT JUST FOR POETS
100,000 Poets for Change is not just for poets . It includes other artists and everyone/anyone who stands for peace, sustainabiltiy and social justice.
100TPC IS FOR YOU: an accountant, a doctor, a farmer, a cook or chef, a cleric, a scholar or student. Please join us at The BeZine this Saturday, from midnight in Israel to midnight in California.
The slide show below displays some of the posters for 100TPC events happening in different parts of the world. To find something in your area check 100tpc.org or Michael Rothenberg's 100,000 Poets for Change Communication Hub. I've also been trying to track the events and post links to them on The Poet by Day Facebook Page. Our Zine is an online event, so you can go to an event in your area and still participate in The BeZine's virtual 100TPC on Saturday, September 29th. Instructions for participation are included in the post that will kick-off the event when it goes live.
Over 2,000 groups and individuals have signed-up to read poems to children (part of 100TPC Global 2018) from September 24-29.
If you are reading this post from an email subscription, you'll likely have to click through to this site to view the slide show.
