The Red Nation invites community members to its first ever conference. The conference will take place on Saturday, August 13, and be held at noon in the Larry Casuse Center (2626 Garfield AVE SE). 

During the conference, there will be various workshops and forums facilitated by members of The Red Nation based out of Gallup, Phoenix, Albuquerque, the Navajo Nation, and elsewhere. The primary aim of the conference is to orient, update, and educate the collective membership of The Red Nation and general public on local, regional, and international movements for Indigenous liberation. Some of the political struggles that will be discussed include clemency for Leonard Peltier, Indigenous Peoples Day, police violence, fracking in the Four Corners, and bordertown justice. The list of speakers, and their presentation topics, will be released on the conference’s Facebook event page and atTheRedNation.org website.

If you’re interested in The Red Nation, curious about movements for Indigenous peoples’ liberation, or just wanting to organize for political revolution, this conference will be an opportunity for you to connect, learn more, and get involved.

The conference is open to the public and participants of all ages. Food and beverages will also be provided. If you’re coming from out of town, we can provide limited accommodations. Please contact us ahead of time for lodging and/or to arrange accessibility services.

Following the workshops and forums, The Red Nation will host a Hozho Riot dance party at 7pm at Warehouse 508 (508 1st ST NW). Suggested donation is $3; no one will be turned away.
