WR Director of National Publicity

Erin Belieu's call for writers to organize local events on Martin Luther King Day, January 15, 2017, resulted in more than one hundred events throughout the US and around the world including a flagship New York City event co-sponsored by PEN America and additional events in Boston, Los Angeles, Oakland, Austin, Portland, Omaha, Seattle, London, Zurich, Hong Kong, etc.

Each Writers Resist event is independently organized around Writers Resist's guiding principles, and all have been open to the public.

Writers Resist is focusing on voter awareness and registration in 2020. Click below to get involved.
