Today homeless activist Carey Fuller, our partner on the poverty zine series, is holding another homeless advocacy meeting at the Auburn Library in the Auburn, WA area (read more about the last event here).
At today’s meeting, the Rev. Jimmie James, Joe Ingram, Carey Fuller will be there to listen to homeless folks’ concerns and survival tips.
Carey will also be collecting more submissions for the poverty zine series.
POCZP is committed to doing whatever we can to support Carey’s efforts in Kent, WA and the surrounding areas. We are proud to partner with her on the upcoming zine series.
ABOUT THE POVERTY ZINE SERIES (WORKING TITLE)
The goal of this zine series is to share relevant and timely information about how to survive and thrive with little or no money. It will also be a resource for those who are newly homeless or in danger of facing homelessness.
The publication will connect people, share resources and provide real stories from people who have learned how to navigate various facets of red tape when dealing with community services (there will also be a digital version + website).
Carey Fuller, a homeless activist and mother near Seattle, WA, is our lead editor for the series. Click here to learn more about her amazing work.
