IMPORTANT: If you are attending the conference and need housing and food, you MUST fill the registration form out. The registration fee this year is $5-10. We will be providing housing for everyone attending who needs it, and breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday.
¡ATENCIÓN! ATTENTION! We are capable of providing multilingual materials for Spanish and French speaking antifascists. If your chapter or crew would like us to make materials available in these languages let us know in your registration form.
The Greater Pittsburgh Anarchist Collective is hard at work planning this year’s ARA Conference. It is our hope that this year’s conference be welcoming to a wide-range of antifascists, radicals, and all those fighting for a classless free society. We wanted to make it a specific point that we want this conference to be attended by more than just chapters of the Anti-Racist Action Network. Our collective is always seeking to expand antifascist and antiauthoritarian struggle and we hope that this conference can be utilized to that end.
The conference will be held over 4 days in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We’ll be meeting just two weeks after the G20 descends on our city with its vileness and capitalist insanity. With any luck the momentum of resistance created during the G20 will carry over to our conference, further building and expanding this movement. Officially planned activities will include workshops, social events, meals, general discussions, caucuses, and the decision-making sessions for the ARA Network. Spontaneous workshops may also be held if space permits.
Keep an eye out on our website at www.antiracistaction.org for updates and more detailed information about the conference that is coming. If you are interested in hosting a workshop or helping with facilitation please send us an e-mail at [email protected].
We hope to see all of you there so we can share our ideas, visions, projects, and strategies. Now let’s get down to business.
