Artists and Writers Needed To Fight Injustice!
I am in the baby stages of putting together a self published book through Amazon.com’s CreateSpace.
We would like to donate the full proceeds of the book, (minus the cost of publishing) to the Not For Sale Campaign.
If you as a writer and/or artist would like to contribute to this project OR if you know someone who might be interested, comment on this post and I will email you as soon as possible.
Thank you so much,
Toni L.A. Cross

Slave in Waiting… A Multimedia Poem by Toni L.A. Cross
She peers out of broken glass
Smeared with all that’s crude and crass
The glass is like her life
It cuts her with its knife
She is old and broken
Her pain pools unspoken
No way to escape
This endless rape
She peers out with shattered eyes
Heavy with tears she never cries
The tears are like the curtain of beads
Strung and hanging useless weeds
Tacky and in the way
Like the thought that she should pray
If God did care
She should see Him somewhere
Won’t He send someone
To undo what is done?
Does no one know
That she is here down below?
YOU can fight injustice!
You may have noticed the new glowing orange button on the righthand side of this website.
I often blog about issues related to injustice and suffering. Well, today, a friend of mine inspired me to actually start researching what I can do to make a difference.
You see, I think about social justice issues often, but I don’t usually think about the fact that I can do something to help. And I think there are probably lots of other people out there- just like me.
You want to help, you just don’t know how.
Please, take a few minutes and watch this video. It is beautifully artistic and yet raw with emotion.
