…….and this just in! The First Annual Free Your Speech Poetry Party at the Harwood Art Center
This Friday, May 4, come celebrate the First Amendment with poetry! The ACLU is holding its first annual Free Your Speech poetry party at the Harwood Art Center to benefit the law student ACLU chapter. There will be a bake sale and silent auction, along with a reading from five fabulous Albuquerque poets: Lisa Gill, Tani Arness, Cathy Arellano, Damien Flores, and Erin Northern. The featured poets will be reading from 8-9 pm, with an open mic to follow.
The law school chapter of the ACLU is raising funds to help bring Constitutional Law classes to local high schools; to send law student lobbyists toSanta Fe; and to provide a stipend for a summer position at the ACLU-NM. We want to foster a strong alliance between progressive lawyers, activists and artists, and we believe in the power of the spoken word to build a progressive community.
Please come enjoy poetry and support the ACLU!
