Here is some background on the Brigade:
The Revolutionary Poets Brigade was founded by 4 activist poets in San Francisco in 2009 since then it has grown to 76 poets out of 25 countries including all poets laureate of San Francisco, Mark Lipman, Agneta Falk Sara Menefee, Antonieta Villamel, Michael Warr, Boadiba, Maketa Smith- Groves, Igor Costanzo, Matt Sedillo, and Vermont poet Jon Turner.
The purpose of the brigade is to raise awareness to social, environmental and spiritual injustices by vocalizing, through performance and poetry, to the public with hopes that the common soul will think about what is being addressed and will therefore grab onto the reins and strive for inner and outer peace.
