You are invited to come celebrate the 25th anniversary of "Turning the
Tide" at a first annual Anti-Racist Awards presentation and buffet
dinner on Saturday, December 7, 2013, at 7 PM. It’s at the West
Side Peace Center, 3916 S. Sepulveda Blvd. in Culver City, CA (adjacent to the 405 Freeway, between Venice Boulevard and Washington Place).
Join us in marking 25 years of uninterrupted grassroots agitating,
organizing and critical analysis, and in helping Turning the Tide
continue going forward as a voice of uncompromising anti-racism,
anti-sexism, anti-fascism, anti-colonialism, anti-imperialism, and
commitment to human liberation and environmental sustainability.
Admission to the event is $20 payable to Anti-Racist Action (or $30 with
a one-year subscription to Turning the Tide added). Larger donations of
course would be gratefully accepted. Call us at 323-636-7388 or email antiracistaction_la@... to get tickets now.
The program will feature a buffet, live music and spoken word, including slam poet Matt Sedillo, and the initiating
presentation of three awards focused on people of European descent who
have contributed to anti-racist struggles. The award recipients will be
present and have the opportunity to address their work.
Each award is going to two or more people, because we think anti-racist
struggle is collective and multi-generational struggle. The awards are:
Adrienne Rich Culture of Resistance and Liberation award, going to
Sheila Pinkel, Mary Sutton and Carol Wells of the Center for the Study
of Political Graphics (CSPG).
the Sarah & Angelina Grimke Anti-Racist Communicators award,
going to Ariana Manov and Leslie Radford (both of whom have been
involved with KPFK Pacifica radio in Los Angeles).
Friedman Working People's Survival award, going to Vanessa Carlisle,
Linzy Cristofani and Charlotte Tonnies Moore, who work together doing
outreach to and organizing of sex workers.
