Antifa Sacramento is part of the International Anti-Fascist Action Network and is a decentralized organization who strongly and actively oppose all forms racism, sexism, homophobia, oppression and exploitation. We are against capitalism and police brutality while support the working class and abortion rights. We believe that a multi-faced approach to combating hate through confrontation, education and culture is necessary and a moral duty.
Antifa Sacramento has no leaders or "official members" and each individual chooses their own own level of participation. We are not a political organization, a gang nor are we affiliated with any religious organization.
Anti-Fascist Action started in London in the mid 1980's and over the past 25 years hundreds of chapters have organized throughout the world on every continent.

This show is to benefit Antifa Sacramento and the Community Dinner Project's #Right2Rest. All profits of this show will be split 50/50 between both organizations.
About the Community Dinner Project:
Since December 8th 2015 a group of activists, both homeless and housed, have been occupying Sacramento City Hall in protest of the Cities "Unlawful Camping" ordinance (12.52.030). The first three weeks were pleasant. We had established a safe zone for people to rest. We also had a food and donation table up every day. This allowed us to help distribute food and essential items like blankets, tarps, jackets, clothes, and toiletries.
During this time we started to help people stay warm in sub freezing temperatures, get much needed rest, feed the hungry, and connect them with services. This was all done by volunteers, mostly homeless, and was a part of our protest. On January 2nd, just after midnight, that all changed. The City responded to our peaceful demonstration with over 50 police officers, mostly in riot gear, to raid our protest encampment and arrest protesters.
From that day on we have been under constant assault by Sacramento PD's constant "sleep sweeps" and confiscation of personal property.There have been nearly 60 arrests, with some of them resulting in injuries to protesters. This has lead to full and emotionally charged city council meetings every Tuesday at 6pm.
Community Dinner Project of Sacramento sets up outside Sacramento City Hall every Tuesday at 4:30pm to feed the homeless in defiance to local laws followed by occupying the City Council to address homeless and police brutality issues. If you would like to help out, donate food or voice your opinion to city leaders, we encourage you to come!!!
