Third Termite Press in Pittsburgh printed the colophon and Ladyfingers Letterpress printed the covers. The participants are: several members of the Justseeds Cooperative including: Melanie Cervantes, Thea Gahr, Bec Young, Favianna Rodriguez, Mary Tremonte, Molly Fair, and myself (Meredith Stern). Also participating are: Ian Cozzens of Secret Door Projects, Kristina Brown, Delia Kovac, Emmy Bright, Lois Harada, Erin Rosenthal, Katrina Silander Clark, Arley Rose Torsone, Sam Merritt, and Olivia Horvath."--[see website listed below]. "There is also a written portion of this project which takes the form of a small hand sewn 'zine'. The zine includes interviews with: Judy Kashoff, Gina Glantz, Peg Johnston, Heather Booth, Ken Rinker, Virginia Reath, Elizabeth Esris, and Judith Arcana. Also included is a comic by Susan Simensky Bietila, which was originally printed in World War 3 Illustrated. There are a wide variety of experiences and stories that are untold, and this is an attempt to share some of them. The stories involve people's personal stories as well as their experiences working for equality through political and grassroots movement work. This aspect of the project has an inter-generational component; people in their 20's and 30's interviewed their mentors/elders. Women, feminists, gay, and queer identified people are largely absent from most historical texts and this project will tell some of our stories."--http://www.abortioncarenetwork.org/news/this-is-an-emergency Limited edition of 125 copies.
