More than twenty nonprofit poetry organizations from across the United States have formed a historic coalition dedicated to working together to promote the value poets bring to our culture and communities, and the important contribution poetry makes to the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds. As its first public offering, throughout the month of March, Poetry Coalition members will present programs on the theme Because We Come From Everything: Poetry & Migration.
