We the News Story Circle at Word Up

Join We the News’s story circle and share your stories on migration, rituals, tradition, and race as an immigrant living in New York City. The stories shared will be documented and transcribe into zines in a traveling newsstand. Each participant will have a set time to share and listen as we co-create our own narratives. Refreshments will be provided.

Let us know if you are planning on coming and would like to have a translator.

We the News is a newsstand that publishes and distributes immigrant-focused publications and products. It features zines that archive stories and conversations shared by Black immigrants and first-generation Black Americans during a series of story circles in Brooklyn, New York. The project is a collaboration with the Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI) with the support of The Laundromat Project.
