ON STRUGGLING

"I think that in order to struggle you have to be creative. In my life, creativity has been something that has sustained me; it awoke my spiritual struggle." - Assata Shakur : : : "On Struggling" is a collective zine project by people of color with the intent of sharing personal narratives of struggle with culture, identity, white supremacy, mental health in our communities, modes of self-care and more.

Incredibly heartbreaking and angering. This is racist and classist bullshit. Politicians don’t care about brown and black kids safety. They just care about lining their pockets with profits. This was a safe space for kids to play and learn, and cps had an agreement to keep it open. La casita mamas and community members want as many people as possible to gather at 4pm for the 5pm news. Spread the word. They haven’t heard the last of us yet. #savelacasita #whittier #pilsen #littlevillage #chicago #peoplepower
