Issue #002: Buy Now!

We at Risen are so proud to finally be able to present to you Issue #002, a project we have been working hard on over multiple months. The second issue focuses on culture and the stories that we are able to write, photograph, and create art over that single word. Team members, as well as people outside of Risen, have shared a piece of them on this issue, bared their pain, wonder, past, and hopeful gaze towards the future, and we hope you find yourselves in this issue as well. 

Thank you for letting us do this for a second time, for letting us put ourselves on paper and letting our lives and stories live forever within pages. We have so much love for all of you and we hope that you enjoy this issue. 

Much love,
Jazmine Alcon
Risen Curator/Editor

"Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings.
I hope we can embrace that. I pray we may all challenge ourselves to delve into the deepest resources
of our hearts to cultivate an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and compassion.
We are all in this life together. "
