Over the last few weeks, Writer's Resist protest readings have popped up all over the country. The original Writers Restist protest was launched by poet and Vida co-founder Erin Belieu and was co-sponsored in new York by PEN America.
Our Straw Mat protest reading, like many of the events across the country, will voice resistance to hate speech and threats to democracy, celebrate free speech and diversity, advocate for accuracy in reporting and transform the margins into new frontiers. In addition to our 12 featured speakers, there will be an open mic at intervals throughout the night.
