Juan Felipe Herrera is the nation’s first Chicano Poet Laureate, appointed in 2015. Herrera’s experiences as the child of migrant farmers have strongly shaped his work. Herrera is a poet, performance artist, writer, cartoonist, teacher and activist on behalf of migrant and indigenous communities and at-risk youth.

Influenced by poet Allen Ginsberg, Herrera’s poetry brims with simultaneity and exuberance, and often takes shape in mural-like, rather than narrative, frames.
