Drop by for the special launch for AMPLIFY(HER), the first-ever zine by and for undocumented women from the Asian diaspora. Grab your copy and support undocumented Asian writers alongside event hosts Sonia Guiñansaca of CultureStrike and Kay Ulanday Barrett, author of When The Chant Comes (Topside Press 2016). Come hear from the editors Manolova “Manny” Yusuf, who leads police accountability and immigrant rights work at DRUM and Israt Audry, a core member of RAISE: Revolutionizing Asian American Immigrant Stories on the East Coast–as well as readings by contributors Michelle Chen and Soonaenae. We’ll also screen a short film by immigrant filmmaker Laura X Moya, an experiemental documentary filmmaker that explores the notion of solitude, immigration, desire, and estranged family dynamics in her/their work. Jam out to a special set by DJ Ushka, an AAWW Open City Fellow and Communications Manager at the New York Immigration Coalition.

AMPLIFY(HER) is a counter-narrative project that aims to empower and encourage women-led storytelling that is crucial to our identities and survival. AMPLIFY(HER) is a collaboration between RAISE and DRUM. The zine launch is intended to be a safer space for womxn and folks who’ve survived sexual & gender based violence.


Co-sponsored by AMPLIFY(HER) and CultureStrike.
