TAKE DOWN ALL SYMBOLS OF WHITE SUPREMACY.
You are officially invited to the 2nd Annual “Take Em Down Organizer’s Conference," hosted by Take Em Down Jax, on the weekend of March 22—24th. We have watched and admired your contributions to the epic movement to rid the public square of toxic, white supremacist symbolism worldwide. From Texas to Trinidad & Tobago, Baltimore to Bristol, the UK we are watching symbols to a system of overt racist oppression fall before our very eyes as we collectively organize to remove them one by one. Our work now remains as crucial as ever as these symbols represent a system of oppression that reared its ugly fangs in the form of the historic Charleston massacre of 2015 that spawned this movement, and continues to reveal itself in the form of continued police killings of black and brown bodies; and a US president that embodies white supremacy like few before him.
Our conference in March will be the second of its kind designed to commemorate, celebrate and strategically align Take 'Em Down efforts. The conference will be targeted towards organizers from around the country and the world who have been engaged in Take Em Down movements in their respective communities. We welcome anyone currently working directly on the movement to attend. It will feature a kickoff event, plenaries, panels, and workshops, keynote speakers, and a protest action to promote our new ordinance to remove ALL symbols to white supremacy.
We would ideally like to see represented every city or community with a monument or symbol movement afoot (and even those just getting started or planning on it). Above is the registration and the means to submit your registration fee. We'll also have scholarships available for those who need them. We hope to see you in the space that weekend to share an epic time of grassroots community and movement building.
