What is Change all about?


It’s a broad term…change. Everything can be changed… but we all care about different things. So how can we come together? Well, we come together under the principle that CHANGE NEEDS TO HAPPEN — we can reflect this on the Global level, economic, city, street, within the home… domestic… there are a lot of needs. That is why it takes ALL OF US to push the change forward.


In solidarity, we support each others’ cause…we cry for each others’ battles, and work together to make change come true. Nudging even just a little bit further can get you such a positive result. Efforts are never in vain.


~ thoughts from Jessica M. Wilson, Los Angeles Poet Society Founder/Poet/President
