After the Storm: Puerto Rico, Poetry and Resistance

Poets Martín Espada, Denice Frohman, Julio Marzán, Peggy Robles Alvarado and Rich Villar demonstrated the power of poetry to raise awareness and galvanize resistance in the wake of the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico after Hurricane María, and discussed the urgent need to combine activism and art to counter the negligence and narrative of Trump.

All proceeds from this event were donated to ConPRmetidos.

Co-presented with the Nuyorican Poets Cafe
