Artists to link up Sept. 26 for world peace and justice

OAKLAND, Calif. – Thousands of artists, poets and performers will be staging performances that are global in content and size this Sept. 26 in a global call for world peace and justice..

Individuals from the U.S., Sierra Leon, India, Brazil, and many other countries will be performing pieces on peace, sustainability, and social justice.

These performances are not meant solely to entertain but also to inspire us to take action to create a more peaceful and just world.

Here in Oakland our very own Cassandra Lopez and the We Tell Our Stories Film Collective will be contributing to the event with the documentary, “We Tell Our Stories.”

According to the group’s Facebook page, this film “chronicles the real-life experiences of grassroots leaders and local agents of change in Oakland who are committed to continuing the legacies of President Nelson Mandela and Dr. King by addressing the struggles for social justice and equality”. 

The 100k Poets event will be broadcast via live stream at the Niebyl Proctor Marxist Library on 6501 Telegraph Ave in Oakland on September 26th at 6 p.m.  

If you are interested in performing at this venue please feel free to email

Admission is $5 at the door and some light refreshments will be provided.

Bay area People’s World supporters sponsor this event and encourage everyone to view the documentary and be inspired. 

For those of you who live outside the Bay Area, the event can still be viewed privately via live stream.
