There is no shortage of zines on Colorado State University’s campus. Between the “Grey Rock Review,”  and  “Speak Truth to Power,” students, staff and faculty have many opportunities to have their work published. However, students will have another opportunity to publish their work in a zine called “Rebel, Empower, Dismantle.”

Put together by members of the Red Whistle Brigade, the zine will focus on helping students heal after experiencing interpersonal violence, oppression, mass incarceration, police violence and more.

Before March 23, students can submit any artistic work including written pieces, songs, art designs to the magazine, according to Natalya Clasen, a member of the Red Whistle Brigade.

“It’s really a co-creation with the CSU community,” Clasen, a sophomore in the Ethnic Studies department said. She noted that The Women and Gender Advocacy Center and Ethnic Studies department will also be involved in the production of the zine.

“It’s a co-creation to build community,” said Jake Aglietti, a Communication Studies senior. “That’s really

what it’s all about.”

The zine was first published in 2005 and has been published every spring semester since then, according to Aglietti.

While the organization involved have yet to decide on an exact publication date, they are shooting for mid- to late-April to introduce their “labor of love,” as Clasen refers to it.
