On September 28, 2013, many poets around the world will make their voices heard. To declare the change they'd like to see most in the U.S. and throughout the international community, events are being staged worldwide as part of 100 Thousand Poets for Change.  This night of poetry and activism in Chicago asks the questions: What is freedom of expression?  Is surveillance dangerous?  Who chooses the information our government can access and censor?  Facebook event page here.
