Sept 12:

National Call to Action to Smash White Supremacy

We are calling for all campuses in the U.S. - whether public or private, HBCU or community college - to join this call to smash white supremacy! Whether it is a town hall gathering, teach-in, demonstration, or other strategic action, we must act now to counter the emboldening of white supremacists on our campuses and in our communities.

Take action with us on Tuesday, September 12th, and the week following Sept 12!

September 12th is the one month anniversary of the Nazi march and the murder of Heather Heyer. It is also the court date for the courageous young people in Durham, NC who pulled down the confederate monument in their city.

On September 12th, and the week following, organizers are mobilizing in defense of these arrestees and the Durham community resisting white supremacy.

Will you join them by planning a solidarity action in your city?

As students are returning to school, we are seizing this political moment and its energy to create a wave of powerful activities that commemorates the often erased history of resistance to oppression in our country; that celebrates the possibility of building a future of liberation together; that pushes back against the narrative that young people, Black and Brown people, LGBTQ people, undocumented people, women, and others must wait for the future we deserve.

Across the country, we will use coordinated action, community-building, as well as creative resistance to concretely challenge institutions and win a world free of white supremacy.

Join us by organizing locally in your community and on your campus!
