Our Mission

The Anti-Racism Working Group is a cadre of the CDSA that organizes for socialism that is anti-racist, anti-colonialist and anti-imperialist. We work to create the direct, concrete opposition to white supremacy that must be a centerpiece of the US socialist movement.

What We Do

The ARWG has been involved in several activities since it’s founding. We’ve worked with groups like CAARPR (Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression) to help raise support for the civilian oversight of the police force, hosted an educational event on Chairman Fred Hampton, organized for the No Cop Academy, protested the Air and Water Show, as well as raised funds thru a chili cook-off. Members have also been involved in the Brake Light replacement campaign, worked with the Lift the Ban campaign and much more.

The ARWG is a bottom-up working group that helps members learn their strengths and grow as organizers and leaders in the anti-racist socialist movement.

Our Leadership Structure

The Anti-Racism Working Group is lead by co-chairs Marvin and Ed.

Getting Involved

There is always room for everyone. We are currently working with other groups to protest and fight against the newly proposed Cop Academy in Chicago. We are still working with CAARPR to try and push the CPAC ordinance which promotes civilian oversight of the police force. We also always have room and capacity to support new members who want to bring their own ideas and actions to the table! Make sure to check the calendar for our next meeting.
