Because We Come from Everything

March 29, 2017

Back in December, we introduced the Poetry Coalition, 25 nonprofit poetry organizations 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.

Beginning this month, the inaugural effort of the Poetry Coalition is Because We Come from Everything: Poetry & Migration. “For this collaborative effort, each organization in the Poetry Coalition will bring its unique mission to the task of presenting programs and projects on the theme of migration.” The projects are inclusive, original, wide-ranging, relevant and engaging.

You can see how each of the organizations describes its projects on the Academy of American Poets Because We Come from Everything page and you can also see many images from the project on Twitter #WeComeFromEverything.
