Published simultaneously as Assaracus Issue 25, which will go out to our subscribers, and as a standalone anthology, If You Can Hear This: Poems in Protest of an American Inauguration includes over 70 poets from around the world writing in response to the 2016 presidential election and subsequent inauguration.
We are also offering the option to pay for additional donation copies of the anthology, which will be provided to libraries and community organizations all over the country. You can select the number of donation copies you'd like to sponsor using the drop down link on this page.

More than anything and no matter what you do, don't stop resisting. Don't normalize bullying or hatred.
If there’s a separation
build a bridge.
If there’s a palace
be the hammer and the spray paint.
If there’s a wall
be the hands that tear that fucker down.
