“If politicians want to defund the National Endowment for the Arts, it may be because they are afraid of the power of art. If they are afraid of the power of art, it’s because they recognize the potency of the poet’s words. And if politicians are indeed unnerved by the potency of the poet, then they should indeed be intimidated by Poetic People Power, and the political feats it accomplishes outside the realm of politicians. Each spring, some of the fiercest poets are united in New York City to tackle thorny topics–universal health care, voting, democracy–with the power of the spoken word. With wit and fearlessness, they have systematically challenged the status quo, creating a ripple effect over the last nine years.

About Shelby Knox
A seasoned feminist organizer, Shelby Knox knows how to utilize social media and blogging to inspire individuals and make change. With more than 8,000 followers, it’s no wonder Forbes listed her as one of “20 Inspiring Women to Follow on Twitter.” Today, Shelby is the Director of Organizing for Change.org, where her online petition in response to the irresponsible reporting of a New York Times journalist covering the gang rape of a young Texas girl received national attention and forced the Times to issue an apology and follow-up story.

The Service Fund’s Annual Holiday Gift Drive provides a brighter holiday season for young women (ages 12-17) facing violence in their lives – many of whom live in local shelters or transitional housing in the NYC area.
Three ways to participate in the Gift Drive:
1) Purchase or bring like-new items to the office for donation (you can also donate cash – as we try to buy the girls each a $10 gift card every year).
**Drop off hours are Monday through Friday, 10am to 5pm, at our location (150 West 28th Street, Suite 304 @ 7th Ave) between November 29th and December 14th
