Thought this might be of interest to a lot of you!
a group of oakland based muslims have started a zine to confront, share, name and re-imagine experiences of islamophobia.
surviving and being a muslim in this poltiical moment is a constant struggle and political act.
this zine is to lift up the perspectives of often untold muslims - the radicals, queers, fabulous and fierce folks - through adding narratives of navigating the spectrum of practice, belief, ideology, sect, gender and islamophobia.
this zine is about resistance and resilience, and us telling the stories for ourselves with all their edges, contradictions, beauties and gems.
this is about saying no to islamophobia and being racialized and politiczed because of our muslim identity - regardless of how secular, radical, and culturally muslim we are.
this is about saying yes to the liberation of all people.
yes to being allied with, and an ally for others.
this is taking a step towards our collective healing.
