***LatinosNYC always has a monthly event that includes an Open Mic; always held at the Nuyorican Poets’ Café. How does a LatinosNYC Open Mic differ from the others in NYC? LatinosNYC offer poetry events and fundraisers to benefit the needy (of all creeds, races and backgrounds) in NYC and all around. The monies collected from their events (what comes in from the door and donations from the audience) go towards serving the community: feeding the homeless, supporting the needy, and growing the community.
