Hear UCR undergraduates, graduate students, faculty writers, alumni, and community members read works of resistance as part of the Writers Resist movement across the nation. This is a major literary protest and show of strength that began just before the January 2017 Presidential inauguration to signal that all eyes, ears and pens are trained on Washington.
