About Us

POOR magazine© is a literary, visual arts based community organization founded by a previously homeless, currently at-risk, mother daughter team. POOR provides vocational training, creative arts and literacy education, new and multi-media access to very low and no income adults and children in the Bay Area, with the goal of deconstructing the margins of class and race oppression. Our programs include an intensive Media Studies program which teaches investigative journalism, photo-journalism, multi-media and broadcasting to bay area residents transitioning off of welfare who desire to be heard and seen within several highly inaccessible media industries.
