SUPPORT: Gifts and Memberships

Kore Press Institute is an intersectional feminist and literary organization dedicated to amplifying and celebrating all women’s voices and the power of language for creating more just and radically connected communities.

Become a sustaining Member of one of the country’s longest running feminist Presses today.

Your membership dollars support radical moms to tell the truth in the live storytelling series Notes from the Motherfield; the Gender Diversity Initiative convening thinkers across-sectors to come up with systemic solutions for classroom and community safety for LGBTQ+ youth in Arizona; a 27 year literary publishing tradition dedicated to lifting up women, trans and gendernonconforming writers who take risks; the Social Justice Youth Summit, culturally responsive and Gender Werk training for educators, and more.

A one-time or monthly gift at any level provides vital support for daily operations and allows KPI to focus resources on innovative sustainability and re-visioning during these extremely challenging times, which helps KPI continue the good troublemaking we do in our local and national communities.

Help amplify women and gender-diverse voices. Help build radical social and cultural cohesion with literature. Help create more just and healthy communities through deep engagement.
