The Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Program is a member of the Poetry Coalition, a national alliance of nearly thirty 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. Poetry Coalition members across the nation are presenting events this spring on this shared theme.

The line “The future lives in our bodies” is from the poem “Femme Futures” by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha.
