January 2017: Community Defense Committees continue to organize – to get in touch about helping with upcoming trainings and community events, or if you would like to get involved email


-What is a Defense Committee?

PPA is organizing Community Defense Committees to respond to the upsurge of white supremacist, homophobic and anti-immigrant violence around the country. Groups in Bronx, North Brooklyn, South Brooklyn, & Queens are already meeting or planning to meet on their own outside our big meetings every Wednesday, 7pm in the Solidarity Center in Manhattan. PPA continues to work on organizing self-defense classes. The first class is Sun, Jan 15, 2017 at 1 pm, but if you have contacts with people who would be able to help provide trainings or space for trainings, please let us know.
