The latest issue, Issue #2 is subtitled "on sexual violence, accountability, consent, healing." It's 50 pages and features work by nine artists and activists on the topics of sexual violence, (self) accountability, building cultures of care, and healing. Contributors engage critical analyses of whiteness, racism, and hetero-normativity in anti-violence work, and think critically on how colonial violence and white-supremacy inform relationships to sexuality and responses to sexual violence. Contributors offer insight to move towards healing and building cultures of care.

Issue #1 (also still available!) is subtitled "reflections, stories, experiences, critiques, and ideas on community and collective response to sexual violence, abuse and accountability." Says Doris zine: "This huge zine (100 pages!) is a tremendous resource for people who are committed to ending sexual violence. The past few years have seen an upsurge of community-accountability processes of dealing with assault—and lots of questions and issues these processes have raised. This zine collects a mulititude of stories, reflections and articles—from advice on finding a therapist, written by a perpetrator who is in an accountability process, to articles describing what different accountability groups look like, to raw stories of the failure of radical communities to step up and offer support to survivors. Intense and essential zine for people doing this work."

Both issues look great. Get them!
