About Us

ANTI-RACIST ACTION-LOS ANGELES/PEOPLE AGAINST RACIST TERROR (ARA-LA/PART), publisher of TURNING THE TIDE, has been fighting fascism since we began in 1987. Our goal is to help build a movement to uproot and overcome organized, institutionalized and internalized white supremacy and all forms of oppression and exploitation. We believe that decolonization, ending the ongoing land theft, genocide, slavery and settler colonial capitalism on which our current destructive state, society and economic system are based, is the path to building communities of solidarity, resistance and liberation. We must fight for a future of liberation, justice, freedom, equality and ecologically sustainable co-evolution for the whole planet.

ARA-LA/PART has 30 years of organizational experience in antifa activism and is passionate about learning the lessons from past efforts, both successes and defeats, in order to apply them to the challenges and contradictions we face today. A founding member was previously in the John Brown Anti-Klan Committee, and involved in anti-racist organization and solidarity going back to the 1960s.

We love and welcome resisters and rebels, freedom fighters, lovers and poets, punx, trad skins, radicals and revolutionaries, and whether you’re queer, trans or cis, straight edge or stoner, we welcome your feedback and suggestions.
