postcards & videos from “Because We Come From Everything: Poetry & Migration”

Read these poetry postcards from immigrants, refugees and others touched by migration – Elizabeth Flock – 3/27/17 – PBS Newshour 

When a group of poetry organizations met in 2015 to talk about collaborating around a shared theme — migration — they didn’t know how timely their effort would be. But “Because We Come From Everything: Poetry & Migration,” a project that launched this month with 25 poetry organization in 15 cities, has since resonated in ways the groups didn’t anticipate, with hundreds writing in and tens of thousands reading the poems online.
