Come make your own activist zines with the Museum of the City of New York and The New York Public Library! Dive into the stories of how activists have used zines and other printed materials in movements past and present in New York City with objects from the Activist New York exhibition, and explore the power of the written word with NYPL librarians. Then, get creative and learn how to make your own zine using materials you already have at home! 

This intergenerational program welcomes teenagers and young adults ages 13 to 25 to tune in and get creative! Families are welcome to watch and participate together.
