Los Angeles Poets for Justice: A Document for the People, is a call to action to humanity, to bear witness and share their stories and interpretations of the affairs of the world in 2020, and especially after the brutal murder of George Floyd.
This call to action is from the Los Angeles Poet Society, serving creative communities since 2009, and is the first document produced by Los Angeles Poet Society Press.
