Call for Submissions!
Muchacha Fanzine Issue #7
“The Coalition Edition”

“There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.” -Audre Lorde

How can we work with our differences in new ways? How can we learn to hear one another more fully? How can we heal ourselves while also addressing systemic oppression? Muchacha’s “Coalition Edition” is calling on feminists, POC, LGBTQ folks & individuals of all abilities, nationalities, sizes, classes & ages to submit stories, art, photography, comics, poetry, essays, song lyrics, doodles, lists of recommended books/movies/art, collages and quotes that focus on how different identity groups can go about building bridges and working together in our social justice goals. I am also looking for submissions on how to bridge the gap between academia & activism and between theory & practice. How we can dismantle systems of oppression together?

I HAVE EXTENDED THE DEADLINE TO OCTOBER 15TH

I know people have mixed feelings about kickstarter around here, but I also know you all know what it's like to really want to make something happen. 

I am going to make the next issue of Imaginary Windows at the Roberts Street Social Centre and I need a little help getting there. This is a community effort and has been making my heart grow ever larger. I hope you might take part in these  efforts and spread the word or get some zines
