Mollys latest article and illustrations about the Bernie Sanders campaign is up now on The Nation.
And Episode 3 of The Zo, “Retaliation” is now available.
“In The Zo, prisoners often face retaliation from prison administrators when they file grievances about ever-changing regulations or misconduct they uncover through their documentation. Our final installment explores how,even though administrators encourage incarcerated people to file these grievance forms, those who do are frequently punished for bearing witness with transfers, solitary confinement, or harassment by prison guards.”
The Zo was also the topic of a recent episode of On Point, hosted by Meghna Chakrabarti and David Folkenflik and produced by WBUR for NPR.
“A new series of videos from The Marshall Project takes a look at life inside prison, through the words of prisoners themselves. Patrick Doolittle, Lawrence Bartley, Doran Larson and Molly Crabapple join Jane Clayson.“

“Ganzeer’s images bring to life an ordinary room in Cairo, where a man cries in bed. Then things in the room begin to speak. Elliott Colla’s poetic prose rekindles thoughts of a relationship that has ended. A poem in comics and words, We Are All Things is an extraordinary book that you can read, dream, and find your old love in.” — Ahmed Naji, writer and journalist

Speaking on a panel with Chandra Walker, the Native Caucus Chair for the Nebraska Democratic Party and Zina Precht-Rodriguez, the leader of the Sunrise Movement, Molly was one of many addressing the thousands of Iowans in Des Moines who came together to discuss the climate crisis and support Bernie’s candidacy. All done in front of banners created from Molly’s artwork from the video A Message From the Future with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez . A full video of the summit can be seen here.

Molly was featured in this weeks Community Spotlight by Radix Media. Radix Media is a worker owned printer and publisher based out of NYC that Molly is proud to support. Earlier this year they handled the printing of Al Andalous in New York, the zine made by Molly and her students during her residency at NYU’s Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, and they did an amazing job.
You can also view Molly’s work at the Museum of Broken Windows, a pop-up experience in New York City, which features the work of artists from around the country. The exhibit asks what the toll of Broken Windows policing has been on Black and Brown New Yorkers and invites people to reflect on why the outdated policing strategy belongs in a museum, rather than on our streets.
