Photos from the Floricanto Press Conference

On February 5th writers from both AWP and the D.C. Community gathered for poetry & protest, a "symbolic Floricanto" on the steps of the US Capitol. Here are some photos:

Excerpt from: Las Flores Son Nuestras Armas (Flowers Are Our Weapons)
by Francisco X. Alarcón

we opened
the doors
of our homes

to greet them

they came in
and evicted us

we showed them

the open green

of our valleys

Read the whole poem and much more about the press conference on the Poets Responding to SB 1070 Facebook page.

In these photos: Hedy García Treviño, Francisco X. Alarcón, Luis Rodríguez
