We’re organizing our first national gathering for April 2018.

As you know, booking the venue, printing conference materials, catering food and transporting folks will add up.

Chip in today—we will need all of the resources we can get!

Now here are articles and events to help you tackle the crises we face:


  1. October 21, Washington, D.C.: BAP national organizer Ajamu Baraka will discuss the connection between the wars abroad and the wars at home at CODEPINK’s summit to launch its campaign to divest from the war profiteers, of which BAP is a co-sponsor.


  1. BAP member and long-time Afro-Colombian activist Charo Mina-Rojas will speak to the United Nations Security Council on the Colombia peace process.
  2. Modern-day slavery for Black, Brown and poor folks.
  3. The 158th anniversary of the Harper’s Ferry raid that kicked off the liberation of Black slaves.
  4. The Black Panther Party celebrated its 51st birthday this week.
  5. The Supreme Court rules in favor of government transparency regarding private prisons.
  6. The real reason the U.S. wants to remain in Afghanistan.
  7. Two doctors who designed the torture program in Afghanistan were paid $80M. The greed for big money drives U.S. wars.
