We can’t keep up with the demand.
The Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) has been inundated with speaking opportunities, and requests that we support actions and participate in community-based discussions.
In order to respond to public demand, support the needs of our member organizations and meet our capacity building objectives, BAP needs to raise $120,000 to develop its organizational and programmatic infrastructure.
Please consider committing to revitalize the Black anti-war movement.
BAP plans to:
- produce educational materials for our members as well as the general public,
- revamp our website to support more direct advocacy and public education,
- purchase a communication platform for our member calls and quarterly public educational calls, and
- create and support a training team.
In the short term, we are opposing Trump’s military expansion proposal while mobilizing against the growing threat of war with North Korea and the expansion of U.S. forces in Syria.
If we meet our fundraising goal, BAP will host its first national gathering on April 4, 2018 in Jackson, Mississippi.
But as you already know, reviving the Black anti-war movement can only occur if we remain financially independent. In fact, we hope 2,000 people commit to sustaining BAP by the end of the year.
Will you join BAP as a monthly sustainer?
As the irrational calls for more war, militarism and domestic repression increase, the mission of BAP becomes even more imperative. But we cannot meet our historic responsibility to resist this madness right here in the belly of the empire without your support. Not only can morality and rationality win, they can help us restore sanity and the rule of the people.
