Join Mexican Students de Aztlán (MeSA), Students for the Advancement of Freedom, Equality and Human Rights (SAFEHR), Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), and Union for Puerto Rican Students (UPRS) for the first Noche de Poetas (Poetry Night) of the Fall 2015 semester.


Don’t miss out on the amazing talented poets as they share their own poetic words on this month’s theme.

Leading the night will be our featured poet Ontonio ‘Tony’ Jackson-Lucas!

  • Who has inspired you to create a positive effect in your community & how do you honor them?
  • What means do you use to spark transformation?

Ontonio ‘Tony’ Jackson-Lucas is currently a junior studying Community Psychology and minoring in African American Studies. He has worked with several organizations on campus such as PBMA to uplift minority communities on campus and surrounding areas. His hopes and goal is to unify minority communities not only through actions but through the art of spoken word.
