Bay Area: 2nd Annual Revolutionary Organizing Against Racism (ROAR) Conference


The Revolutionary Organizing Against Racism Conference (ROAR) returns to Ohlone land, the so-called bay area on April 28th and 29th, and will take place in both Oakland and in San Francisco. To hear recordings from last year’s conference, go here, here, and here.

We have battled and been bruised, but are inspired and ready for the coming storm. From the murder of Heather Heyer at a white supremacist demonstration in Charlottesville, to the spontaneous airport shutdowns after Trump’s ban on Muslims entering the US, to an inspiring display of solidarity and mutual aid dealing with the ramifications of a collapsing ecosystem, we have forged long overdue alliances, built solidarity in the wake of natural disasters, and together struck what we hope are fatal blows to a burgeoning national fascist movement.

This year we invite you to gather again at the second annual Revolutionary Organizing Against Racism ROAR Conference! The ROAR Conference is a FREE two day event that will be held on Ohlone Territory (San Francisco Bay Area). Revolutionary Organizing Against Racism means not only opposing white supremacists in the street, but being able to build a movement that can challenge the very pillars of a society built on slavery, genocide, and racist exclusion.

It means tearing down borders and abolishing prisons; it means struggling to ensure black liberation; it means stopping the pervasive violence against trans women of color; and it means protecting our Muslim neighbors by any means necessary. In doing all of this and more, we are creating a freer world. Join us at ROAR for dialogue, community and capacity building, skill sharing, and nurturing revolutionary anti-racist movements!

When and Where:

ROAR will take place on Saturday, April 28th at Omni Commons in Oakland and Sunday, April 29th at California Institute for Integral Studies in San Francisco. More info will soon be posted on the ROAR website with a complete schedule.
