The Poetry Coalition is a national alliance of organizations dedicated to working together to promote the cultural relevance of poetry and the important contribution poets makes in the lives of people of all ages and backgrounds. Each March, members present programming across the country on a theme of social importance, which thus far has included "Poetry and Migration" and "Poetry and the Body." The Poetry Society of America invited a group of poets to respond to this year's theme "Poetry & Democracy."  

Support is provided by the Academy of American Poets through a grant from the Ford Foundation.
