A call to join the growing mobilizations happening in Burns, Tennessee against two white nationalist conferences featuring speakers and groups who organized the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.
On the weekend of Friday, May 17th – Sunday, May 19th, “American Renaissance” will be holding its 8th Conference in Montgomery Bell State Park located in Burns, Tennessee. Its founder and one of the world’s central figures in promoting “scientific racism,” Jared Taylor, has for years pushed racist and white nationalist ideas, helping the Alt-Right to grow into the current murderous and deadly movement that it is today.
This year’s conference is set to feature white nationalist and unsuccessful Toronto Mayoral candidate, Faith Goldy, leader of Identity Evropa/American Identity Movement Patrick “McLovin” Casey, Nick Fuentes, and James Allsup, just to name a few.

In June, another event is being held, organized by both the American Freedom Party, (founded in part by neo-Nazi skinheads), as well as the Council Of Conservative Citizens (who’s writings helped radicalize Dylann Roof) and will be held at the same location as the American Renaissance conference.

The “Nationalist Solutions Symposium” will feature ex-Grand Wizard of the Ku-Klux-Klan David Duke, Bill Johnson, the leader of the American Freedom Party, League Of The South Chairman Micheal Hill and “Alt-Right” founder Richard Spencer as well as many others. Many of these speakers played a key role in organizing and carrying out the violence in Charlottesville at the Unite the Right rally in 2017.
A coalition of antifascists, clergy, and anti-racist organizations are mobilizing a mass march and rally on both May 18th and June 26th in response to both events happening in Montgomery Bell State Park.
