Back to School: A Collective Zine from A Queer Endeavor EIEJ

In the zine maker space at the 2021 Educator Institute for Equity and Justice, a collective of educators created a zine that centered institute themes, queries, and their own sense-making. Zines, short for magazines, have a long history of serving as an accessible, free form of publication. Furthermore, Zine’s are an example in action of people power, and the creative potential of community.
