Luna del Flor

Liza Zayas, also known as Luna del Flor, works with the power of poetry as a mirror and healer. She intersects her lifelong passion for justice, equality, and the healing of humanity with her artistic goal of dialogue through individual and shared experiences in rhyme. Raised in Lawrence, Massachusetts, Liza’s Puerto Rican roots have pulsated her rhythmic poetry into performance art. As Luna del Flor, she performs at poetry, VDay One Billion Rising, International Women's Day, and Women’s History Month events. When not on stage, she curates events with other talents for these movements and more as a stage manager, talent coordinator, hostess or DJ.
