Poetry of Resistance: Voices for Social Justice a reading by editor Olivia Galvan Rodriguez and contributors Odilia Galván Rodríguez, Sharon Elliott, Jabez W. Churchill, Avotcja, Antoinette Nora Claypool, James Downs, Cathy Arellano, Genny Lim and Cesar Love read to celebrate this new anthology, edited by Rodriguez and Francisco X. Alarcon (University of Arizona Press, 2016). On April 20, 2010, nine Latino students chained themselves to the main doors of the Arizona State Capitol in an act of civil disobedience to protest Arizona s SB 1070. Moved by the students actions, that same day Francisco X. Alarcon responded by writing a poem in Spanish and English titled “Para Los Nueve del Capitolio”/”For the Capitol Nine,” which he dedicated to the students. The students replied to the poem with a collective online message. To share with the world what was taking place, Alarcon then created a Facebook page called Poets Responding to SB 1070 and posted the poem, launching a powerful and dynamic forum for social justice. Since then, more than three thousand original contributions by poets and artists from around the globe have been posted to the page. Poetry of Resistance offers a selection of these works, addressing a wide variety of themes, including racial profiling, xenophobia, cultural misunderstanding, violence against refugees, shared identity, and much more. Contributors include today’s readers as well Francisco Aragon, Devreaux Baker, Sarah Browning, Lorna Dee Cervantes, Susan Deer Cloud, Sharon Doubiago, Martin Espada, Pam Uschuk, and Alma Luz Villanueva. Bringing together more than eighty writers, the anthology powerfully articulates the need for change and the primacy of basic human rights. Each poem shows the heartfelt dedication these writers and artists have to justice in a world that has become larger than borders. Poetry of Resistance is a poetic call for tolerance, reflection, reconciliation, and healing.”
