Make a Difference


"When I began to listen to poetry, it's when I began to listen to the stones, and I began to listen to what the clouds had to say, and I began to listen to others. And I think, most importantly for all of us, then you begin to learn to listen to the soul, the soul of yourself in here, which is also the soul of everyone else."   - Joy Harjo

If only we could sustain ourselves from our love of poetry alone. It really takes a village to create a movement toward equity for all. We must resist & persist. No one is illegal.
