We are an alliance of community based grassroots organizations mobilizing and organizing rapid response to resist increased instances of individual and state sponsored violence. This response occurs at the intersections of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and immigration status. We work to build a system in which the community can demand accountability, challenge injustice, and access healing after experiencing violence. We are organizing to place sovereignty back into the hands of communities directly affected by systemic oppression and build leadership, generate power, and organize resistance with and alongside all directly affected peoples.
Organizations involved include Direct Action for Rights and Equality (DARE), Providence Youth Student Movement (PrYSM), The FANG Collective, Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics RI (COYOTE, RI), Colectivo Sin Fronteras, and the Refugee Dream Center. We will need support from individuals and organizations together to keep our communities safe.
AMOR envisions a world where the community has the power to ensure sovereignty. Where families are do not fear being separated due to their documentation status and where black and brown communities are able to protect themselves against police violence and immigration raids. AMOR envisions a world where mental and physical health are the number one measure of community safety. Furthermore we envision a society where individual acts of hate and state sponsored hate are defeated by frontline community resistance.
