In Detroit, thousands of independent media makers gathered for the 20th anniversary of the Allied Media Conference over the weekend. The annual conference began in 1999 as the Midwest Zine Conference and has since grown into one of the biggest gatherings of independent media makers in the country. This is Linda Campbell of Detroit People’s Platform.

Linda Campbell: “In this time in America, just to be able to know that there still exists—and we’re able to build spaces to build together, to talk about our different movements and the intersections across different movements, both here nationally and across the world. It’s also a space where a lot of young people of color gather. And that’s encouraging at times when some of our communities of color are under attack, particularly our immigrant communities.”
