The collection broadly deals with themes of social activism. Specifically, it focuses on issues relevant to New Yorkers in today’s tumultuous climate. 


Zine titles include: Women Artists Zine by Michael Sabine Rear, Where Have All the Feminist Bookstores Gone? By Mr Elvis, and Trump Reminds Me of My Rape by Ifer Moore and K.V. Natan.
