We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

IPRC x Design Week Portland|Dispatches Pop-Up Virtual Library: Zines From Around the World

August 6, 2020 @ 12:00 am - August 7, 2020 @ 11:30 pm

Free – $25
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

From its start, the zine has been an easy & accessible printed form of spreading information and political & personal stories outside of commercial publishing pathways. It continues to be a powerful medium for amplifying and spreading narratives of grassroots movements that might face censorship or misinformation otherwise. Person to page to person (and now shared on virtual bookshelves), zines create an intimate and impactful experience of learning what’s happening on the ground sometimes even in other times and seemingly far away places.

The Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC) is partnering with ZineCOOP in Hong Kong and Rabbits Road Press in London, plus Portland-based artists and organizations like Anna Vo and Don’t Shoot Portland, to share a sampling of vital (and often, beautifully-designed) zines about grassroots movements both local and around the world. Come immerse yourself in our pop-up reading library, learn, be moved, be surprised, be inspired, and imagine our collective, global futures.

Sliding scale donations ($10 or $25) accepted to access the zine collection. All funds will be split evenly between zine partners. No one will be turned away for lack of funds (free registration option available).
