SubRosa is a non-profit, donation-funded space in downtown Santa Cruz for art and radical projects run by a collective of volunteers from the local anarchist community. It offers anarchist books, zines, and music. The space also houses the Anarchist Lending Library, featuring books on anarchy, Situationists, history, politics, ecology, indigenous studies, feminism and psychology that might not be available in the local library.
The Meristem Health Distro distributes radical and do-it-yourself
health zines and information. We want to empower ourselves and each
other to take our well-being and healing into our own hands and find
ways to minimize our reliance on the western medical establishment.
Topics include herbalism, medicine making, reproductive health, women's
health, mental health, emotional support, sexual health, and more!
is an incomplete list of zines we have at SubRosa.
