100 Thousand Poets for Change,
Toronto Mission Statement.

Our goal is to bring poetry back to the center of cultural life. In the same way that the revolution in communications technology has sparked revolutionary movements around the world, so we, the poets of all nations, one hundred thousand strong, will speak on the same day to express our solidarity with those who cannot speak for themselves. Whatever else, poetry is freedom. By speaking to a world-wide audience using Facebook, Twitter and Skype, we will remind all of us of poetry’s great gift to the human spirit – delight.
