The Twin Cities Zine Fest goes beyond zines and self publishing. TCZF is a community, a space for the Twin Cities community. We organize this event because we love the Twin Cities and Minnesota and we want to see our area thrive. Part of our mission is to support politically and socially engaged work, and to uplift the voices and experiences of traditionally marginalized groups. In the light of the murders of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights MN, we feel responsible to say something and to act. We stand in solidarity and support the efforts to end racism, police brutality, and support the families of those suffering from ruthless violence and murder from the hands of the police and the state.
Though we are a small event, the Twin Cities Zine Fest organizers strive to create a space that is anti-racist, accessible, and just. We are here for everybody. We will stand up for everybody in the name of justice.
