‘What is Coming to Get Us?’ How about Prejudice, Very Small Array?

| November 4, 2011

The ZRC has to take issue with the above graphic from Very Small Array on a number of levels. First, regardless of where you live, Zombies are not ‘coming to get you’. Quite frankly, the whole world doesn’t revolve around Living people, and Zombies don’t just exist to ‘get’ them. Zombies are a diverse lot [...]

Even More Zombies Fighting Against Breast Cancer

| October 26, 2011

We do some work here at the ZRC fundraising for breast cancer research via The Lurch for the Cure, as our loyal readers are no doubt aware, so seeing others also bring the Living and Undead together in the same cause is very nice: Be they zombies or ROTC members, nothing rallies the dead and [...]

Detroit to Have Many Zombie Events in October, But Media Misses the Point As Usual

| October 21, 2011

I’m very happy to hear about all the great Zombie events in the Detroit area this month, some for charity, and very disappointed in the press coverage: Is a zombie apocalypse coming? Metro Detroiters might wonder as much over the coming weeks. Not only is today designated as World Zombie Day, but on Sunday, zombies [...]

World Zombie Day Tomorrow

| October 7, 2011

For those who do not know, World Zombie Day is an annual event to coordinate Zombie Walks and similar events to collect food for the needy, and this year’s WZD is tomorrow: World Zombie Day, a day when all fans of zombie culture can join together in an international effort to alleviate world hunger. At [...]

Geek.Kon and the ZRC: The Whole Story

| September 19, 2011

I’ve hesitated to write this post about our ill-fated attendance at Geek.kon all week, despite interested parties, Zombie Allies and dear friends asking about it in the intervening time, because the ZRC is about positive change, working toward a brighter tomorrow for the Living and Undead alike. We don’t like burning bridges. But, as longtime [...]

The ZRC Goes to Geek.Kon 2011: Days 2-3

| September 12, 2011

(our booth over the weekend, exhibiting a slideshow of past activism) Sorry about getting this post up so late; we were beat and unpacking and all that today. Somehow despite being in town the convention was pretty exhausting! We had three long but festive days of outreach. The ZRC spent Saturday and Sunday all day [...]

Yet Another Charitable Zombie Walk, But Unfortunately Associated with ‘Dead Island’

| September 11, 2011

This particular charitable Zombie Walk I’m not sure the ZRC could have gotten *entirely* behind since it doubled as a game launch event for notable Evil Anti-Zombie game ‘Dead Island’: Zombies aren’t usually known for being the most charitable or fun loving monsters, but come this Labor Day, a group of zombies will be just [...]

Another Fun Zombie Walk for a Good Cause

| September 11, 2011

This time in Amherst, Ohio, and benefiting a food bank: AMHERST — A zombie walk Sept. 10, where people dress in full zombie makeup and walk like zombies in Amherst, will take place to collect food for the Second Harvest Food Bank. The zombie walk is for zombies of all ages and is family-friendly. See? [...]

ZRC at Geek.Kon 2011!

| September 10, 2011

Sorry I didn’t have time to update much today, it was *crazy* at the Kon. First of all, had some setup issues, then there was a huge traffic jam I got caught in running a forgotten bit of supplies there, etc. However, all in all it was a fantastic first day. (Our mostly set-up booth. [...]

The Zombie Rights Campaign Official Statement on Geek.kon Controversy

| September 7, 2011

We received a comment here on the blog recently from an ‘animelover’ who seems to have trawled our archives back for months and discovered the post covering the ‘Zombie Walk Against Walker’, a prominent and highly successful bit of political activism by the Differently Animated here in Madison last spring. For the record, as we [...]
