Sun Apr 4 2010 (Updated 04/05/10) An Interview with Tiny from POOR Magazine
Media Justice and the Crime of Poverty They redefine the meaning of media with art, hip hop, graffiti, spoken word, poetry and talk-story. They are dedicated to providing extreme access to media, education and arts for youth, adults and elders struggling with poverty, racism, disability and border fascism locally and globally. They are a family of poverty scholars based in San Francisco and together they are POOR magazine.

In this interview with Angola 3 News, Tiny Garcia, co-founder of POOR Magazine, tells how she got a welfare-to-work grant to teach "poor mamas like myself" to be journalists, writers, and media producers. Three years later they lost their funding when the government saw that "we were teaching people how to write about the very systems that were oppressing all of us… and when the government dollars left, so did all of the philanthro-pimped private donations." But that only led Tiny to fight harder.
