The event creator says
The University of Houston Downtown invites you to the first of several events taking place in the City of Houston as part of the annual 100 THOUSAND POETS FOR CHANGE—an arts activist movement which seeks to speak against social injustice by using the arts as instruments of social change.

This year’s day of solidarity among poets world-wide is September 26, and we invite you to initiate our city’s annual readings and performances at UHD on Wednesday, September 23, 6:00pm in the Coffee House, 3rd floor, Academic Building.

Participating Houston Poets are: TPC Organizer Billie Duncan, Houston Poet Laureate Robin Davidson, Ilyas Brown (e.), Brad Hoge, Sharon Klander, Jasminne Mendez, Lupe Mendez, Lisa Morano, Eloísa Pérez-Lozano, Elina Petrova, Anis Shivani, Melissa Studdard, and Chris Wise.

After the UHD event, three heavy metal bands who are part of 100 Thousand Musicians for Change will be performing at Houston's Continental Club in solidarity with the 100 Thousand Poets for Change.
