Join Mexican Students de Aztlán (MeSA), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), and Union for Puerto Rican Students (UPRS) for the first Noche de Poetas (Poetry Night) of the Spring semester.
Don’t miss out on the amazing talented poets as they share their own poetic words on this month’s theme: Resistance
Leading the night will be our featured poet: Aysha Affaneh
- How can we collectively work towards justice?
- What have been some moments of resistance in your life and how can we support each other?
Aysha Affaneh is a Filipino & Palestinian spoken word artist from the suburbs of Chicago. She is passionate about social justice and finds strength in writing about prevailing and overcoming. Her biggest performance was a couple weeks ago in front of 21,000 people at the Muslim American Society (MAS) or the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) convention.
