CAUTION: some graphic scenes!

The Welfare Poets are a collective of activists, educators, and artists working together since 1990.

Through teaching and workshops, activism around community struggles and through sharp-edged performances of music that incorporates Hip Hop, Bombay Plena, Latin Jazz and other rhythms, the Welfare Poets bring information and inspiration to those facing oppression and fighting for liberation.
