OUTCOME
We will distribute this free zine nationwide to those who need it, provide it as an e-zine for worldwide access and create an online community resource with real-time information.

This is an ongoing series. The first edition will be released in December of 2012, along with the website. We&#8217;ll share more details in the coming weeks.

Anyone who has had experience living at or below the poverty line. We want your tips, stories and practical knowledge about how to survive and thrive.

SUBMISSIONS &amp; QUESTIONS/FEEDBACK EMAIL
POCZPpublishing@gmail.com (don&#8217;t forget the two letter Ps &lt;3)
WHY IS THIS THE FIRST ZINE SERIES FROM POCZP? 
Because more people are living at or below the poverty line than you realize.
Because often those in crisis resort to harmful decisions due to lack of information.
Because often government resources are difficult and/or impossible to access due to bureaucracy and misinformation.
Because most publications about poverty are focused on educating the general masses about poverty, not providing real-time, relevant and practical information for those living in poverty about how to survive and thrive.
Because mental survival is just as important and this is an experiment in building a DWO (Doing With Others) support network.

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT: Don&#8217;t miss Carey Fuller on Huffington Post LIVE, TOMORROW 9/12/12 at 12pm ET/9am PST at http://live.huffingtonpost.com/.
We can&#8217;t share at this time what she&#8217;ll be speaking about tomorrow, but here is what we do know:
* Carey Fuller spoke to Huffington Post LIVE in late August about her personal experience with poverty and her work serving homeless folks in her area near Seattle, WA. Click here to watch and jump to about 10 minutes in (she has technical difficulties before that). Carey dispels a few myths that continue to persist about the homeless.
On tomorrow&#8217;s episode of Huffington Post Live, Carey will be joined by Tavis Smiley and Cornel West. Smiley and West will also host a town hall on poverty at Delaware State University at 8 p.m. this coming Thursday on their “Poverty Tour 2.0.”
* We announced last week on Facebook that Carey is partnering with POC Zine Project on a zine series by and for folks living at or below the poverty line, for the purposes of sharing practical knowledge and community building. We will work with printing and distribution partners to share this zine with folks who need it.
Here is some info from Carey&#8217;s bio:

I am a single mother of two and proud of it. I lived out of a Minnie Winnebago for about 6 years and had to get a mini-van instead. While looking for “real work”, I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in health services administration. I stand by the causes I believe in regardless of the indifference around me. I may not tell you what you want to hear, but I will tell you what you need to listen to.

If you are interested in collaborating with POC Zine Project and Carey Fuller on this zine series for homeless folks and those living at or below the poverty line, send us a message. The first issue will be released in Winter of 2012. We&#8217;ll do a couple more announcements about this after the tour. &lt;3
To learn more about Carey and her ongoing efforts, check out her website (where she shares a ton of practical survival knowledge): http://careyfuller.com and stay informed on Facebook (she makes many public posts):  https://www.facebook.com/carey.fuller.5
If you&#8217;d like to help Carey with her direct action efforts in her community to serve homeless youth, please make a donation to indy.inn@hotmail.com via PayPal. The donate button is also on her website in the far lower right section.
