100 Thousand Poets for Change

Words and the thoughts that are put into them make a difference. Thus, as something of an antidote to all the hateful/ignorant discourse in the world, 100 Thousand Poets for Change — a yearly reading event focused on themes of positive change and open to all levels of poets — goes beyond its obvious symbolic and cathartic purposes and is capable of making an actual difference. Spearheaded by local poet/activist Viktoria Valenzuela in 2011, the event this year adopts the timely theme of human rights for San Antonio’s immigrant population. The event, which includes an open mic portion as well as musical performances, will feature readings from a host of accomplished poets, including Dr. Carmen Tafolla, Sheila Fiona Black, Amalia Leticia Ortiz, Anel Flores and Wendy Barker.
