100 Thousand Poets for Change March for Peace, Sustainability & Justice
The 2nd annual march unites local artists and activists to speak out for change

Santa Rosa, CA (September 14, 2014) – 100 Thousand Poets for Change is featuring the 2nd annual 100 Thousand Poets for Change March for Peace, Sustainability & Justice on September 27, 2014.

Poets, activists, musicians, community leaders, DJ’s, mimes, performance artists and concerned citizens from throughout Sonoma County will march, dance, demonstrate, sing, recite poetry, and speak out through the streets of Santa Rosa in a freedom of speech march calling for peace & sustainability. This local event is part of the 100 Thousand Poets Global Event, which includes over 600 events happening all over the world!

Local issues are key to this massive global event as communities around the world raise their voices on issues such as homelessness, immigrant rights, global warming, education, gender equality, police brutality, racism and censorship, through concerts, readings, workshops, performances and other actions.

The Santa Rosa march starts at noon at Julliard Park and will travel through downtown Santa Rosa ending at Old Courthouse Square for musical performances, art exhibits, and more! Local organizations and groups will also be tabling to share information about their work in the community.

Sponsors and endorsers of this march so far include: Peace & Justice Center of Sonoma County, Green Party of Sonoma County, KWTF Community Radio, PACH: Police Accountability Clinic & Helpline, HAVE: Helping American Veterans Endure, Comité VIDA, Andy Lopez Memorial Picket Line, Andy’s Youth, KBBF Bilingual radio, Petaluma Progressives, North Coast Coalition for Palestine, Women’s Spaces, and Community Foundation Sonoma County.

100 TPC Co-founder Michael Rothenberg says, “We are in a world where it isn’t just one issue that needs to be addressed.” A common ground is built through this global compilation of local stories, which is how we create a true narrative for discourse to inform the future.”

100 Thousand Poets for Change, or 100TPC, is an international grassroots organization focusing on helping people in the arts to work in their communities to create a better world. It was founded in 2011 by Michael Rothenberg and Terri Carrion, and focuses on a world-wide event each September.
