​Writers for Migrant Justice is a Nationwide event occurring on September 4 in cities across the country coordinated nationally by Poet and activist Christopher Soto in collaboration with local poets from participating cities. Writers and poets are invited to read poems in response to the worldwide migration and refugee crisis, drawing particular attention to the humanitarian crisis in the United States. We will be gathering in support of migrants, immigrants and refugees and to bear witness to the positive contribution they bring to our communities.
