Join us for this history lesson that has political and strategic relevancy for today. Two founding organizers of Anti-Racist Action (ARA) will discuss the fight against fascism beginning with Nazi skinheads in the 1980s' counterculture scene to organizing the militant antiracist movement that became known as ARA, which confronted the klan and white supremacy at the end of the twentieth century.

ARA's original "Four Points of Unity" from 1995:

Over the past year, we have seen an alarming increase in hate crimes and attacks against immigrant, Muslim, LGBTQ+, and other vulnerable populations in our communities, as well as across the country. Have you asked yourself, “What could I have done if I were there?” Have you witnessed someone being harassed, but were stifled or frozen by fear and didn't know what to do?

Livingston For Love Rally

Date: 
Sun, Aug 27, 2017 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

City:

We, in Livingston County, believe in love. We believe in the power of love to create strong beautiful communities, deepen human connection across differences, and conquer the forces of fear and hatred. This week has seen fear and hatred exemplified in the actions of those who marched with symbols and words that proclaimed that one race was superior to another, that some human lives did not have as much worth as others. We’ve seen this before in Livingston County.

Rally to Condemn Brutal Racist Attack at Eastern Market

Date: 
Sat, Jun 17, 2017 - 10:00am to 12:30pm

City:

On Thursday, June 1st, Randolph Davison, a 48-year old African American man, was viciously beaten and stabbed by two white men shouting using racial slurs. The attack occurred midday in Detroit's Eastern Market while Davison sat on a bench at the corner of Russell and Alfred streets.
Luckily, Davison survived. However, the attack is another example of the rising tide of white supremacist terror in the United States, and a case of unprovoked violence against the homeless.
