Anti-NSA poetry slam

On Friday, March 28, BORDC in partnership with Split This Rock and CODEPINK will have a poetry speak out opposite the White House calling for the end of the surveillance state. This collaboration is part of 

Split This Rock's earthshaking biennial poetry festival

. We would love for your to take part or come out as a show of solidarity. 



Please RSVP here if you plan to come.

If you want to participate, you'll need to:


Write a line of poetry on a piece of paper to be handed to an organizer after it is read. The line should not exceed 12 words.


Include the name of the poet, your name (if not using your own work), and your hometown.



Your contribution can be about any aspect of the surveillance state, including what effects mass surveillance has on our democracy, communities of color, or the free exchange of ideas. 


This will be a great opportunity to exercise your creative voice, meet inspiring poet activists, and reconnect with allies.
