Poetry & Migration

In November 2015, over twenty nonprofit poetry organizations joined forces to form a national Poetry Coalition working together to promote the value poets bring to our culture and the important contribution poetry makes in the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds.

In March 2017, the Poetry Coalition launched its inaugural effort, Because We Come from Everything: Poetry & Migration. For this collaborative effort, each organization in the Poetry Coalition brought its unique mission to the task of presenting programs and projects on the theme of migration. Here's a look at what took place across the country in March. 

Any and all were invited to program on this theme in March and share their efforts using the #WeComeFromEverything.
