About POC Zine Project

POC (People of Color) Zine Project's mission is to make zines by people of color easy to find, distribute and share.

Founded in the United States in 2010 by Daniela Capistrano, POCZP is an experiment in activism and community through materiality. Functioning as a grassroots advocacy platform, we produce events nationwide, offer mini grants and connect independent writers and publishers of color with resources and mentorship.

POCZP will be focused on coalition building outside of the USA starting in December of 2013.

We go on our second #RaceRiotTour in October of 2013 through 20 U.S. cities, producing over 30 events.

POCZP has archived over 300 zines created by people of color since 2010. If you are interested in having your zines added to the archive, consider making a donation!

Email for info: poczineproject@gmail.com



We share a selection of zines through our ISSUU account. Some of these zines were donated by the authors, recovered from websites (for free distribution), or scanned by POCZP volunteers from our archive (with permission).


Here are some sample titles. Enjoy!
