About

Atlas:DIY, a cooperative empowerment center for immigrant youth, was founded in late 2011. AtlasDIY is both a legal clinic and a safe space for undocumented youth and their allies.

http://www.atlasdiy.org

A year later, Atlas: DIY formed a core membership of very passionate and very talented young people who envisioned a community of immigrant youth that was not bound by borders. For CASA members, Art was their answer. Art is universal, Art is not bound by borders. 

Community Art, Social Action (C.A.S.A.) was formed. C.A.S.A. met every Sunday from 4-6pm in the AtlasDIY office, newly opened on July 1st, 2013.

http://www.atlasdiy.org/#!casa/c4t9 

With C.A.S.A., Atlas: DIY's core membership sought to unite their talents and passion to create a project that would support their different artistic mediums such as writing, photography, painting, etc,. They would share ideas, facilitate strategic messaging workshops and develop new skills. 

After many meetings and workshops, C.A.S.A. settles on a literary magazine. This literary magazine will capture our point of view.

 Undocu-View

Project Vision: Undocu-View is a literary magazine created entirely by immigrant youth, documented or undocumented. We need your support to create a literary magazine, a capsule through which to share our world view, undocu-view, and send across the country, to make our visions be seen, our voices be heard, and to let others know they are not alone. 

Goal:  The money from this campaign will cover the cost for creating the content and publishing the magazine. This magazine will be distributed by us to people all over the country, not only undocumented youth but school, non profits, and anyone else who wants to hear what youth have to say through art, and to learn what undocu-vision is. 

Timeline: We hope to publish our first issue of Undocu-view in January of 2014. We envision it will take a month to get the word out and collect submissions (September/October), another to collect submissions and edit them down (October/November) and another to print beautiful copies (November/December) so that we can get them to you by January!!!

Risks and challenges

Risks: There are no risks we can identify for the completion of the project as CASA meets every week and we have an incredible core group of youth that has already begun to create content. Of course there is always the risk of not being fully funded on time, but any kickstarter project has to face that. :)

Challenges: It is very challenging to create a painting without paint. As it will be to print Undocu-View without money. Despite how awesome it is.
