Poets are gathering tonight, Tuesday June 14th, from 6–9 PM, in NYC’s Strawberry Fields Memorial in Central Park for a vigil honoring the victims.

From the event’s Facebook page:

“This crime was committed in a nightclub. Let’s bring some of that magical quality into our own VIGIL for those we never met but always knew.

PLEASE COME AND BRING YOUR SPIRIT: We want to hear your voice, and want America to recognize this for what it is.

A HATE crime, the largest to hit our community in modern times.”

For those of us who teach, educators are compiling a comprehensive list of resources for addressing the Orlando shooting in the classroom. The #PulseOrlandoSyllabus includes relevant books, articles, poems, videos and more. You can read the syllabus, and add your resources, here.
