Great art often arises from adversity. For the eight artists of Poets Resist: Voices of Dissent, current issues such as the divisive political climate, racism and injustice provide ample fodder for creativity. Vermont poet laureate Chard deNiord introduces the evening of political poetry by Reuben Jackson, Tina Escaja (with translator Kristin Dykstra), Sara Browning, Simone John and Muslim Girls Making Change (pictured). Intended to inspire hope, change and action, the event benefits the ACLU Foundation of Vermont.
