The 2016 Phoenix ANti-Capitalist Conference
The Phoenix Anti-Capitalist Conference is a yearly gathering of anarchists and radicals to network, discuss ideas, and learn about local projects. The conference features a variety of presentations, discussions, and workshops, with a strong emphasis on anarchist praxis. The third annual PACC is scheduled for February 13, 2016, at The Night Gallery in Phoenix, AZ.
Confirmed presentations include:
Alexander Reid Ross, "Countering Fascist Organizing Tactics"
Sole/Tim Holland, "Building Anarchist Infrastructure"
Jason Ohdner, “Capitalist Health Structures and Radical Alternatives”
as well as collaborative panels on abuse accountability in radical communities, independent media, prison support strategies, and more.
Every year, we rely on outside donations to keep the conference accessible and free to attend. Fundraising helps us to offset some of the costs of the venue, food, printing costs, and travel expenses for speakers. This year, we will also be providing free childcare for the entire event, and free, hot vegan food for lunch and dinner. Like most anarchist events, the Anti-Capitalist Conference is paid for out-of-pocket by the organizers, and all donations help substantially. Your support and presence are greatly appreciated.
In Solidarity and Struggle,
Carpe Locus Collective
