Poetry and Disability Justice: Free Virtual Event


Join us virtually on April 29th from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. (EDT) for “The future lives in our bodies: Poetry & Disability Justice," a poetry reading and conversation exploring how poetry can inspire questions about disability justice and spark increased engagement with this important theme. 



Moderated by poet and essayist Ona Gritz and featuring poets Ina Cariño, Camisha Jones and Stephen Kuusisto, this event is offered for free. Registration is required.



CART captioning and ASL signing will be provided.

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.
