La Raíz Magazine is a literary magazine that publishes visual art and poetry by community members, writers, and artists based in San José, California and Santa Clara County, while also welcoming work from our national and international community. La Raíz Magazine consciously creates space for the publication and presentation of creative work by people who identify as women, girls, and members of the global majority (People of Color, BIPOC); with an emphasis on work by people ​whose ​heritage is rooted in lands​ that are now Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, and South America, who identify as: Chicana/o, Indigenous, Raza, from their country of origin. Through our publication and events, we hope to promote inclusion, empathy, and connection.
