The COVID-19 pandemic, the George Floyd uprising, and the economic crisis have lifted the veil of our
individualistic capitalist system to offer another path forward: collective care. A tool of survival & liberation,
collective care prioritizes an individual's well-being as the shared responsibility of a group as opposed to
the lone task of an individual. Centering the voices of creatives of color, the "Collective Care" issue sheds
light on how we can build the infrastructures of care & support that are necessary to liberate our
communities and ensure the future of our world. (25% of all publication proceeds benefit the Black Trans
Travel Fund, a grassroots collective that provides mutual aid to Black trans women so they can access
self-determined safer travel options).
