Nurturing Liberation: A Round-Up of Newly Released Radical Parenting Zines

The radical parenting zine community is a thriving one and a few of our favorites are just now being released- check them out!!


1. Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind #4

DLYFB is a zine geared towards radical non-parent allies, but even as a parent I find tons of helpful tips in here to help make our movements more age-inclusive.  I liked especially that it had so much on the intersection between the prison industrial complex and families.  Here is a breakdown of just some of what this issue has in it.

Rad Dad #19

Well, this just came out and isn’t available online, so haven’t been able to actually read it- BUT! ¬†Rad Dad is always great and this issue’s theme is “heavy topics,” so it’s definitely going to be a good one.










Cuntastic #3- The Radical Parenting Issue

This zine hails from just over the pass in Grand Junction, CO! ¬†The zine is freaking awesome, as is the blog that accompanies it. ¬†This particular issue focuses on Radical Parenting, which is great. ¬†It has a cool look inside the day to day living of the radical co-op house there and all their lil babies. ¬†It also has a great essay from one of my favorite radical parents Rahula Janowski, a radical parenting book list, an essay by another favorite of mine Vikki Law, who happens to be the author of the excellent book Resistance Behind Bars: The Struggle of Incarcerated Women, and co-editor of the previously mentioned Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind zine! ¬†It also features¬†Cesareana,¬†¬†an art collection around the theme of mama survivors. ¬†Just overall great, great work.

  1. Thank you so much for putting the word out about our project and our latest zine (and for your support of my work on incarcerated women too).

    My co-editor China and I have been meaning to contact you about writing something about the Nurturing Liberation project for Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind. We are in the process of turning our zine series into a book and so I’m writing to ask if you (collectively, individually or some in-between) would be interested in writing about your experiences for the book.

    The call for submissions is here:

    We would be thrilled to have something from the Nurturing Liberation project! The deadline is March 15, 2011.
