Our world is laden with people and organizations committed to promoting fear, exclusion, avarice, and many other human emotions that lead to tension, conflict and suffering.
Art, including poetry, provides a peaceful but firm counterbalance to these often negative, divisive, counterproductive, and damaging belief systems by sounding a clarion call of hope, opportunity, and possibilities.
Social Justice Poetry is a blog where hopeful, optimistic, vibrant, vigorous thinkers challenge the status quo and suggest powerful alternatives that support human beings and encourage the common good. It’s a positive movement that shines a light on inequality and oppression and replaces it with compassion and community.
Thank you for visiting my blog; I look forward to reading your poems on social justice and working together to build a fairer, more equitable world for everyone. You’re cordially invited to read my poems as well as the work of the other thoughtful poets on this site.
