ABOUT US
The image people have of Portland is mainly based on the white majority who live here - 76.1 % of the population, according to the 2011 U.S. Census. But the other 23.9%, the other Portland, they have a voice too. And the Women of Color Zine (WOC) group is one of the ways that other voice can be heard. The WOC Zine group has published two issues of their zine collective "Women of Color: How to Live in the City of Roses and Avoid the Pricks." Issue one is about navigating racism/gentrification in Portland; issue two focused on fashion and art of WOC in Portland. Both issues are available for $3 from the group, Powell's Bookstore and In Other Words. The zines can also be checked out from the Multnomah County Library.
TABLING
While the event is zine focused, WOC zinesters are allowed to display/sell other DIY products (buttons, postcards, etc). We only ask you not to sell any food items. Tabling is on a first come, first served basis. We are offering half tables for a fee of $10. If you have questions regarding tabling and register by PayPal click here: http://bit.ly/HX5JQj
