Our collective got together again last night for another zine making, meal sharing occasion—we also spent most of the evening reflecting on the past year’s organizing, survival and creative efforts. Making time and space for ourselves, together, is always so replenishing!
Making time for rest and sunshine! Our SxHx Combabes Beach Day was such a lovely chance to connect, slow down and enjoy each other’s company. So grateful for comradeship and care!
Celebrating this beloved comrade today (and truly every day)! Happy SECOND Freedom Day anniversary, Alisha! TWO YEARS!!!! We give thanks every damn day that you’re home! Here’s to you, here’s to chosen fam, and here’s to a future without prisons! 💖🎉
Zine nights with the comrades 🥲💖 Our “Year Seven” zine is in the works! Making time to reflect, share and assess our work together over zine making, shit talking and food is essential to our collective process. Get you a crew that is fierce and joyful too. 🌈☂️

From Sunday’s (12/4/22) rainy but lovely tabling under the big top of Lone Star Zine Fest — seven hours of non-stop zine swapping, slinging and talking about decrim, abolition and collective zine making. On the whole, a really welcoming experience!! There were a few YIKES moments…but thankfully they didn’t linger. Was also so thrilled withContinue reading “Lone Star Zine Fest roundup!”
