We the News Newsstand
Word Up welcomes We the News, a physical newsstand that collects and prints immigrants’ stories. Through a series of story circles, immigrants shared their diasporic experiences and anecdotes of their rituals and traditions. Each story circle was documented in a zine shared at the We the News newsstand. We the News is created by Lizania Cruz, a designer and artist originally from the Dominican Republic and now based in Bed-Stuy, with support from The Laundromat Project in collaboration with Black Alliance for Just Immigration.
