30 Poems, 30 Days In November
Thirty Poems Thirty Days is a literary celebration to benefit literacy at the Center for New Americans, a Northampton non-profit that provides community-based education and resources for new immigrants in the area. The "30 Poems" project helps with the Center’s financial support. One poem is produced by the Smith team each day in November. Please support the work of our Smith students as they support the crucial work of the Center. We hope you will contribute to their efforts with a donation. The fundraising page is here. If you'd like to read the poems, visit our blog here. For more information, please email Matilda Cantwell at email@example.com.
We are also hosting a celebration party for all those involved, writers and supporters. After writing one poem each day in November, sponsored financially for their effort, writers will read their work at a community celebration. Free and open to the public.

Active Nonviolence, Strategy and Spirit
An introduction course that emphasizes the original spiritual practice behind effective strategies that have enabled social change. It is not characterized by pacifism, but rather a strategic practice based on the belief that "peace is not the absense of tension but the presence of justice" (MLK). Participants will be introduced to its historical roots through a look at nonviolent social movements, such as the US civil rights movement and gain exposure to the spiritual and religious convictions that were at its foundations. There is also an opportunity to present reflections at the annual Northampton commemoration of Martin Luther King Junior on Monday the 20th of January. Click here for more information
January 13th through the 17th, 1:00-3:00 PM
