Issue One: The Mercy Issue
Protest Magazine’s Mercy Issue dives into all things recovery and regeneration. Women incarcerated, mental health, (im)migration, and feminine identities in the scope of our religious belief are a few things on the minds of our contributors. In the Mercy Issue, Tamanika speaks about bouncing back after serving time, therapist and Reiki Priestess, Leotha Foster, talks about the power in giving our experiences a voice, and Sally Hassan speaks on mental illness and her Muslim identity.

Protest Magazine is the quarterly compilation of creative work by and for women of color. Protest’s seasonal anthology and portfolio was created specifically to preserve the cultural identity and aid the artistic advancement of femme people of color. As women of color we are often forced into conditions that lack in resources and limit our opportunities. To combat this, we’ve got to uplift our sisters enough so that we are all well equipped to fight.
Address the prejudiced, biased and intolerant beliefs that exist between the women of different cultures and communities. Pick them apart and question them. Dismantle and ruin them so that we can hold each other down during our work for social equity. Protest Magazine values the intimate, empathy-driven relationships among women of color because structural barriers can be removed when we decide to collaborate.
