R.A.W.R was a zine created by youth age 10-15 at the Children's Media Project during the summer of 2007. This zine represents a summer's worth of media activism, deconstruction, and community dialogue. For many of the zinesters, this was their first experience outside of the mainstream media. After carefully considering the one-way flow of media and how detaached from our local lives most media is, the kids threw themselves whole-heartedly into making 30 pages of artistic and literary cultural criticism. After discussing how zines and self-publishing contributed to a healthy democracy's freedom of speech and freedom of the press, the group held a vote and decided to name the zine RAWR! as an acronym for Raising Awareness With Respect.
