Smart Girl Club presents: Poems for Peace

Please join us this Thursday for a fundraiser poetry reading hosted and organized by Smart Girl Club. The event will be raising money for Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) and Center for Reproductive Rights. A zine compiling poetry and drawings titled Poems for Peace will be available to purchase, and Smart Girl Club will consequently donate 100% of the proceeds to MALDEF and Center for Reproductive Rights. There will also be donation boxes for both organizations. We will be accepting cash only for the zine.

Poems for Peace contributors include Jessica Butler, Kayla Ephros, Sade Keinu, Milah Ruby Libin, Amanya Maloba, Tali Ramsey, Amhara Rein, Rafelina Sanchez, María Fernanda Snellings, Eden Sterling, Ashley Thompson, Victoria Villier, and Sara Wasserman.

The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund is a national non-profit civil rights organization formed in 1968 to protect the rights of Latinos in the United States.
