TSPJ Stands In Solidarity with New Zealand: We are One

The Skinny Poetry Journal stands unhesitatingly against hatred and stands boldly in solidarity with the people of New Zealand in the wake of the Christchurch Massacre. Our prayers go out to all of those impacted by this cowardly act of white supremacist terrorism.  We also pray for the United States–our own nation–whose current president’s hateful, racist rhetoric, has invigorated the rise of right-wing hate crimes all over the globe.
