Resist with us!

Milwaukee writers and artists will gather for a reading featuring poems of resistance at Woodland Pattern. 

Adjunct Press will release a chapbook of selected poems from the reading. This chapbook, along with artwork by Stacy Blint and Ken Nelson, will be available for purchase.

All proceeds will go benefit the Milwaukee IWW General Defense Committee and ACLU work for prisoners rights.

About the IWW General Defense Committee:
The GDC is building a direct working class response to deportations, police, and hate crimes. Money raised is used for direct legal aid to protest movements and class struggle. With the rise of the white supremacist far right, the entryist "alt-right", and the election of Trump, our mission is to unify and protect working class gains.

About the ACLU:
The American Civil Liberties Union has worked for nearly 100 years to defend individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States. Funds from this event will are earmarked for the ACLU's fight to end private prisons and defend the rights of prisoners. The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world—a rate five to ten times higher than those of countries like Canada, France, and the United Kingdom. From their website: "Prisoners’ rights to read, write, speak, practice their religion, and communicate with the outside world are often curtailed far beyond what is necessary for institutional security. Not only are these activities central to the ability of prisoners to retain their humanity, but they also contribute to the flow of information between prisons and the outside world and thus provide a vital form of oversight of these closed institutions."
