FCHC 2020 Zine Information

We will be launching our first ever zine this spring! The zine will bring together creative voices from across the country to share reflections of economic justice and stories from the movement to decrimalize poverty and homelessness.  

  • The goal of the zine is to build a strong, locally-based narrative of economic justice organizing  
  • The zine will feature up to 10 pieces of work
  • Submissions can be of work already completed OR work that can be completed by March 31st, 2020
  • The zine will prioritize and center the voices of Black, Indigenous, and people of color and people experiencing homelessness.
  • The zine will be primarily in English, but work in other languages are welcome

We are in search of makers of all genres and levels of experience with a passion for social justice and community organizing and storytelling to contribute to the spring zine. Preferably the makers will have lived experience with housing insecurity, organizing with the fort collins homeless coalition, and want to tell a personal or local story..

Potential Contribution topics could include

🌸The story of a local group or community leader fighting for change

🌸Storytelling from an action, training, community event, or campaign

🌸The importance/significance of decriminalizing homelessness and poverty

🌸What prison abolition means to you personally

🌸How you see food justice, housing justice and economic justice intersecting

🌸And so much more!

Selected pieces will receive some screen-printed art work as a symbol of appreciation. Repurposing old work totally ok! Submit your photos from actions! Poems from your journal! Sketches and artworks and musings from organizing!
