Dog Section Press aims to be as deeds not words as possible for an organisation whose primary purpose is the publishing of words.
We distribute free bundles of DOPE to homeless people to sell on the street. Currently we have distribution sites at Freedom Bookshop (London), Lighthouse Books (Edinburgh) and October Books (Southampton). Anyone who wants to work with us selling DOPE can visit those shops during their opening hours and pick up a bundle – no questions asked.
We also distribute DOPE Magazine for free to prisoners, via Haven Distribution. If you know of a prisoner that would like a subscription, just send us their name, prisoner number and address via the contact page.
In 2018, we gave away over 2000 copies of DOPE to street-vendors, with a resale value of at least £6000. But we need support to continue offering material solidarity in this way. In 2019, we also have ambitions to expand our distribution network around the country.
Supporting our Patreon will help us give away more DOPE and all of your support will go directly towards that goal. Thanks to the economies of scale associated with printing, the more support we get, the cheaper DOPE will become to produce – and the more solidarity we can spread.
