We are reevaluating our goals to verify that organizational ideals are consistent with, at the very least, the Abolitionism base.

Internal Team

As a distinct department within the coalition, our internal team operates separately while being an integral part of Yumyoda. Our role involves managing logistics and facilitating communication between Yumyoda and the organizations we collaborate with.

Financial support plays a pivotal role in shaping event logistics, resource distribution, community outreach, and dedicated showcases within a resilient and interconnected society. Our commitment to transparent supply chains not only facilitates the circulation of resources but also creates purposeful opportunities, reflecting our fundamental principles as advocates of a social and solidarity economy.

Garments

Each clothing item will be categorized, whether it’s a T-shirt, Longsleeve, Hoody, etc. A single-color print will adorn the back, while the front will consistently feature the coalition’s logo. The back design will be refreshed every quarter. All pieces will undergo meticulous hand printing at the CarouselsPress studio in Brooklyn.

Stickers

Every quarter, we produce top-notch 2×6″ ethos stickers utilizing local business resources. These prints are distinct, with 72 unique stickers crafted each quarter. We’ve observed a significant demand for these stickers, making them highly sought-after and tradable across a diverse demographic.

Buttons

We craft 2.75″ Button Pins centering on leftist ideologies, primarily abolitionist with occasional expressions of Anarchy, Communism, and Social Democratic art. Embracing diversity, our advocacy values differing perspectives, understanding that agreement on everything is not a requirement.

Zines

We distribute zines, buttons, and stickers for free at the event and with pre-order tickets. Our 20-page zines offer survival tips and intriguing facts tailored for urban dwellers. From essential information to adventure maps and do-it-yourself instructions, we strive to address the diverse needs of individuals on the streets, empowering and providing support.

Our Proposal

Introduction:

We are delighted to introduce Food Fight Zine Exchange (FFZX), a unique quarterly event that transcends the boundaries of typical gatherings. FFZX merges the realms of Food Security and Self-Preservation, bringing together these two essential facets in a manner that explores the chemistry they create, which is crucial to navigating the certainties and uncertainties of our contemporary world. Our core philosophy is rooted in the principles of a solidarity economy, operating under the overarching umbrella of cooperation or abolition. We prioritize safety over mere security, recognizing the importance of fostering a community based on mutual support and collective well-being.

Event Description:

Food Fight Zine Exchange is not just another zine exchange event; it’s a dynamic convergence of ideas and resources. Attendees have the opportunity to trade zines, stickers, and buttons, creating a vibrant exchange of knowledge, creativity, and expression. The heart of the event is the tables that feature offerings, such as job opportunities, DIY education materials, and resources covering various aspects of life, including food, health, and weather-appropriate clothing. These tables are curated in collaboration with a range of organizations whose mission aligns with FFZX’s principles. At FFZX, we believe that accessibility to essential resources should be a right, not a privilege.

Funding and Sustainability:

FFZX is made possible through the dedicated efforts of YUMYODA, an organization that operates on a unique cooperative model. YUMYODA raises funds by offering packaged creativity. The funds generated from these activities are reinvested to sustain the event. Our aim is to keep everything at FFZX free of charge, and where that’s not yet the case, we’re actively working towards making it freely accessible to all. In this way, we aim to embody the principles of the solidarity economy we advocate for.

YUMYODA: A Starship with Two Departments:

YUMYODA operates as a dynamic entity, consisting of two distinct but interconnected departments. The first is our internal team, responsible for facilitating and overseeing various aspects of YUMYODA, including communications, financial management, and public relations. This department ensures the smooth functioning of the organization and its events, as well as maintaining our digital presence and community engagement through social media.

The second is our coalition, a collective embodiment of what YUMYODA represents. The coalition is a testament to the shared values, ethics, and goals that underpin our organization. It reflects the diverse community of individuals and organizations that stand in solidarity with YUMYODA’s mission, advocating for a more equitable and just world.

Conclusion:

We invite you to join us in this extraordinary journey, as we bridge the realms of food security, self-preservation, and community solidarity. FFZX is not merely an event; it’s a movement towards a more resilient and interconnected society. Together, we can build a future where cooperation and collective well-being are at the forefront, ensuring that essential resources are accessible to all.

We eagerly anticipate your participation in this transformative event.

Thank you for considering our proposal.
