We strive to provide a friendly, positive space and environment to help build a strong revolutionary anti-authoritarian culture. We advocate anti-corporate, do-it-yourself principles and open participation as well as actively opposing sexism, homophobia, racism and all forms of oppressive behaviors wherever they exist. Arise... is a not-for-profit event. All proceeds go to benefit RACE (Revolutionary Anti-Authoritarians of Color), a bay area-based group for anti-authoritarian activists/organizers of color.
