Did you Know?

In 1969, some students at UCLA created a publication called 'Gidra' to provide their peers a space to explore their identity, address community issues and give hope for the future. Their goal was to feature issues that were important to them that were not covered by mainstream media. From 1969 to 1974, monthly issues of Gidra included poetry and art as well as news and opinion.

5% net profits from Uprisers World Gidra Collection will go back to KOSUMOSU: a program of LTSC which started in 2003. This is a transitional facility for survivors of domestic violence. They provide consultation to get housing, counseling, and life skills to provide future success.
