Around the Block: Kore Press

We’re building a community here at Kill Your Darlings Candle Company, one to which we contribute financially at your direction when you check out on our online store.

Throughout our preorder window, we’ll be introducing you to the organizations to which you can instruct us to contribute 10% of your order subtotal (or 5% once the window closes).

So let’s meet one of these organizations, Kore Press!

According to their website,

Kore Press Institute believes in the power of language and collective effort to create a more just and humane world.

An intersectional-feminist, literary arts organization dedicated to keeping the margins in the center through publishing, education, and innovative community engagement, Kore works against hate—racism, sexism, homo/transphobia in particular.

For the last 26 years, and counting, Kore has been upending literary and social landscapes with activist cultural work and public dialog centering women and transgender voices, and all the others with us in the margins.
