100_Thousand_Poets_for_Change_logo 100 Thousand Poets for Change, or 100TPC, is an international grassroots educational organization focusing on the arts, especially poetry, music, and the literary arts. It was founded in 2011 by Michael Rothenberg and Terri Carrion, and focuses on a world-wide event each September.

The concept of “Change” in the name 100 Thousand Poets for Change refers to social change, but is otherwise broadly defined and dependent on the definitions of individual organizers or poets. 100TPC events do not necessarily share political or philosophical orientation. The 100TPC web site describes the “change” as having only to fall “within the guidelines of peace and sustainability. We sponsored a virtual event and chose to focus on Peace and Justice since the core value of The Bardo Group and Beguine Again is nonviolence. The following are links to contributions from our own Core Team and from our readers. We invite you to read, enjoy and ponder and certainly to feel free to leave comments in the comments sections.
