re:claim is a publication at Columbia that works to center the voices, well-being, and liberation of Black people, people of color, disabled and neurodivergent people, femme, queer, gender-non-conforming and trans people, migrants, workers, and all marginalized identities in both content and in leadership. We strive to embody values rooted in histories of activism, anti-oppression politics, creative resistance, and freedom of expression for those who have been historically silenced.

Check out our full Statement on Values if you’re interested in getting into the details.


re:claim strives towards a non-hierarchal and consensus-based model for decision making. Please reach out to reclaim.at.cu@gmail.com with [STAFF] in the subject line if you are interested in getting involved in any capacity, or if you have questions about the people staffing any of the following committees and sections:

  • Organizing Committee
  • News
  • First Person
  • Creative Writing
  • Art


Please reach out to reclaim.at.cu@gmail.com or any of the folks listed above if you are interested in getting involved! We make decisions by consensus using a non-hierarchal structure. Recognizing that people have different capacities for and ways of contributing labor, time, and energy, we strive to make involvement as accessible and accommodating as possible. On-boarding involves a brief conversation with a couple current committee members just to make sure we’re on the same page. We’d love to have you!
