The official title is: What to Do When Someone Tells you that you violated their boundaries, made them feel uncomfortable, or committed assault.
A trifold pamphlet that lists steps that people who've been called out for sexual assault should take.
This is an excellent zine talking about addiction, from all sorts of perspectives. It goes into the author's own experiences with addiction and kicking a heroin habit and most importantly talks about how communities can respond to someone struggling with addiction in a way that is helpful and non-judgmental. (Along the way, it offers radical/anarchist critiques of AA and 12-step programs, the moralism often attached to other people's substance use, and lots of other things.) Chock fulla insights and one fine zine.
A zine on self-injury, eating disorders, and sexualized violence. This zine lays open the author's struggle with internalized sexism by looking at the ways patriarchy has manifested itself in the author's body. Other articles connect her personal experiences with a broader, intersectional exploration of power within activist and punkrock communities she both embraces and attempts to hold accountable.
TRIGGER WARNING: this zine deals explicitly with self injury, eating disorders, and sexual assault. read with care.
This zine explores the behaviors and mindsets of BDSM, and attempts to show why BDSM is oppressive and patriarchal. One of the two files is laid out for printing, the other for reading on the computers.

This is a handout from the Rock Dove Collective that provides an outline for an alternative model of dealing with conflict -- no police, no state, no hierarchy, no jail. It's community-based and centers around bringing people who are affected by a conflict into a facilitated circle to talk about the issues and feelings that arise from the conflict. A good beginning.
Also included is a word document with an example script outline for facilitators, as well as an outline of what circles are and aren't intended to do.
