In honor of the many revolutionary changes happening all over the omniverse and here on sacred Mother Earth, we will celebrate being alive in the present and being part of this magnificent shift!
There is so much to be proud of, honor and celebrate in this great community of poets, as many of the greats have soaked in the Berkeley vibes having had profound, transformative, transcendental experiences in this special part of the bay.

100 Thousand Poets for Change was created not far from the Berkeley blue skies and sunshine, in Guerneville, CA and we will have the honor of having the founders present for this event and they will share the story of the great success and unprecedented, explosive growth of the movement of 100TPC*. Poets are, indeed, changing the world!

The Social Justice Committee of BFUU (berkeley fellowship of universalist unitarians) will graciously host this momentous, special event. For many years, the BFUU has been an important anchoring part of the community and provides a great gathering space for a diverse, open, thoughtful and radical group of progressive, open-minded citizens. BFUU is a ‘progressive, spiritual community that stands proudly for social justice’ & is a perfect complement for 100thousand poets for change, with their focus on positive yet radical and responsible change.
We will host a large, festive potluck for this occasion in gratitude for the gifts of the harvest season and the abundance of Mother Earth; feel free to bring a healthy, conscious dish to share with your friends and neighbors!

Costume party! Dress up/costume as your favorite revolutionary! (optional)
