New CAN Chapter at Folsom Lake College!

New CAN Chapter at Folsom Lake College!

Aren’t community colleges where a diverse array of students from all walks of life come together to start their pathway to higher education? Maybe. But at Folsom Lake College, located in a conservative suburb of Sacramento—home to white nationalist groups, like the Golden State Skinheads, Sacto Skins, Traditionalist Workers Party, and other alt-right boneheads—we have major problems. Despite the institution’s commitment to diversity and equity, we are a hotbed for ultra-nationalism and overtly racist activity. A lot of this new…

Bray, the author of the book Antifa: The Antifascist Handbook, was rebuked by the Dartmouth administration for his scholarly treatment of the antifascist movement in the United States.

Endorse and Join the Campus Antifascist Network

The election of Donald Trump has emboldened fascist and white nationalist groups nationwide, on campus and off, and their recent upsurge requires antifascists to take up the call to action once again. Since Trump’s election, fascists, neo-fascists, and their allies have used blatantly Islamophobic, anti-semitic, racist, anti-indigenous misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, and ableist messaging and iconography to recruit to their ranks and intimidate students, faculty and staff. As we wrote this letter, hundreds of torch-bearing white supremacists were marching on the…
