"In challenging times like these, poetry and the written word give expression to our col- lective experience, enrich our understanding with new insight and perspective, challenge us and inspire us. CAPS anthologies achieve this consistently by bringing together gifted artists from the Hudson Valley and across the world, and we thank you for the opportunity to explore perspectives on social justice, injustice, and liberation through this vibrant collection of work." — Senator Jen Metzger, NYS Senate, 42nd District
Edited and curated by artivist & former Dutchess County Poet Laureate Poet Gold and CAPS own webmaster Greg Correll, Mightier - Poets for Social Justice is the newest and most profound anthology of voices from CAPS Press. Featuring poets from around the Hudson Valley and the world, Mightier - Poets for Social Justice is exactly what we all hoped it would be: a starting point of a necessary and painful conversation.
"To inspire change, we must not shy away from difficult conversations and perhaps now more than ever, poetry provides an outlet to communicate with one other in a unique and beautiful way about important issues." — Marc Molinaro, Dutchess County Executive
"Poets, writers, painters, performers, muralists, and musicians—have the ability to distill the world they live in through their art. They are today's prophets, philosophers, and truth tellers that make sense of our lives and societies. This anthology captures the urgent voices of poets harmonizing with the voices of the oppressed, the forgotten, the newly awakened, and the ignored." — Linda Marston-Reid, Executive Director, Arts Mid-Hudson, NY
