From the mouths of Moon Root: It is an evolving experiment in building loving, radical community. As self-identified womyn, trans*, and genderqueer persons of Asian Pacific Islander (API) descent living in diaspora (whether East Asian, South Asian, Pacific Islander, Southeast Asian, Central Asian, West Asian, hapa and/or mixed), MOONROOT is an attempt at deep community building across borders and geographies. We believe that because our multiple and intersecting identities often render us invisible and misrepresented—even within our own communities—reclaiming our voices is a radical act.
It Sucks to be Robbed: Here's how we're dealing with it. ALL ZINES BY MOONROOT COLLECTIVE ARE SOLD OUT AND WILL NOT BE REPRINTED
moonroot, a collective of Asian and Pacific Islander womyn, trans + gender queer folks, offers this zine as a reaction to a direct event: 4 of them being robbed at gunpoint in August 2013. The zine is a collection of stories and survival strategies to heal within a context of structural violence. Each author uses a traumatic experience to explore ideas of safety and violence, privilege and oppression, and trauma and healing. Some reoccurring themes the pieces touches on: gentrification, interracial prejudice and anti-black racism, police involvement that further marginalizes POC. Most vitally, the pieces reinforce that it is never the victim’s fault that they were robbed, and that victim blaming only hinders the healing process of survivors of violence and crime.
