From: Carwil James <fishe-A-igc.org> Greetings all,
We are looking for speakers and/or workshop presenters for
an upcoming Anarchist People of Color conference, to take
place in Oakland April 16-18. You do not have to be an
anarchist to present a workshop. You do, however, have to
be a person of color to attend this conference.

There is no one unifying theme for the gathering, however,
there are a few different things people are interested in
having at the conference -

Skillsharing - Confronting the powerful, surviving
capitalism and building a new world takes all kinds of
skills! Can you copwatch, make art, or facilitate meetings
exceptionally well? Want to share advice and experience on
organizing in the workplace, getting brutal cops fired, or
making our own media? Or do you know how to entertain kids,
fix a bike, or teach self-defense? If you think you know
something other folks will also want to, send us a workshop

The "basics" of anarchism - Anarchism means different things
to different people, but we're looking for people who can
break down anarchist takes on the state, oppression and
capitalism and anarchist visions for running our lives
without any of them. We want people to be clear and
understandable so we can expand the circle of POC taking on
the state.

Anarchist theory - Turn off the conventional rules of
politics and you get a lot of new ideas. Do we want
cultures, communities or nations, or just free individuals?
Just how much organization and how much chaos to need to
challenge the powerful? How do we build an anarchism that
respects our roots? Lay it all out, or set up a debate that
contrasts the ideas that animate our movement.

Caucuses and clusters - Part of our work is creating spaces
to hear our own voices and confront our own privileges.
Caucuses will be held by LGBTQI folks, non-male identified
folks, and other groups who would like to meet up - we need
people willing to facilitate these groups. Also, the
gathering is a place for POC in various scenes: labor
organizers, anti-globalization activists, poets, street
militants etc. to check in with each other and the context
and critiques.

Strategies and projects - So now what? Talking and community
are great, but this can also be a place for envisioning and
planning new projects, conspiracies, and communities. Make
it happen.

To submit a proposal, or suggest a topic, please email
lani@akpress.org workshop proposals based on participatory
learning are encouraged.

If you want any more info on the conference in general,
please email race@riseup.net or call (510) 208-1700
