About the Project:
Born n Raised in Frisco-An ongoing Herstory/History Project of the Al Robles Living Library @ POOR Magazine: -

Born N' Raised in Frisco is an ongoing writing and poetry herstory/history project for folks Born and/or Raised in the indigenous Ohlone Territory of Turtle Island named after Saint Francis de Assisi.

The project included three 6 week creative writing/story-telling/talk-story workshops which facilitated the stories, poetry and art of youth, adults and elders from eight different neighborhoods who have lived in, are currently houseless in, are displaced from or still reside in the city of San Francisco. The workshop focused on the impact/violence of gentrification and displacement as well as the resistance of peoples who have been removed or are at threat of removal due to capitalism/greed, rampant redevelopment and ongoing real estate speculation

The workshops were co-led by Tony Robles and Tiny aka Lisa Garcia with Asian Robles as in-class illustrator who illustrated in class work as a real-time artistic documentarian

POOR Press is the publishing arm of the grassroots, non-profit, arts organization, POOR Magazine/Prensa POBRE.
