Join us on Friday March 31st, at the Digital Humanities Center at Barnard College, to celebrate the life and legacy of one of the zine community’s beloved figures.
Jen Angel was a visionary. A prolific independent media activist and zinester, she published Fucktooth, her personal zine; Clamor Magazine; the Zine Yearbook; and was an editor of Maximum Rock’ n’ Roll. Her writing appeared in publications such as Bitch, Punk Planet, Upping the Anti, and In These Times. She died as a result of an apparent robbery-assault in Oakland, California, on February 9.
Jen was called a “visionary” by Utne Reader and a “pioneering media activist” by Bitch. She was a core organizer of the Bay Area Anarchist Book Fair, a founder of the Allied Media Conference, and co-founder of Agency: an anarchist PR project. She was a consummate builder of community, using every opportunity to bring people together and forge a world based on love, dignity, and mutual aid.
Anarchist, social justice activist, community baker—Jen’s life, spirit, and radical commitment touched thousands of people. We’ll be remembering Jen and talking about how to carry forward her lifelong commitment to radical change. The Fucktooth collection and the Clamor archives will be available for review.
“There’s this misconception that anarchism means chaos. But the term means ‘without rulers.’ We don’t expect people to organize for us. We organize for ourselves.”
