Thank you, to all our Angels, who supported our 11 Year Angels campaign! Your support means the world to us and with this support we have founded our publishing wing: Los Angeles Poet Society Press!  & we have published our first, a  powerful anthology in response to this moment in history: Los Angeles Poets for Justice: A Document for the People!
If anyone would care to donate to this campaign, we are still accepting donations to help reach our yearly goal. Please click the links below.
