Are you outraged by injustice but don’t know what to do?
New to activism and/or want to get more involved/connected?
Want to support new and current activists in solidarity and love?
Activists Recruiting Organizing and Mentoring in Atlanta (AROMA) hosts activist meet and greets every last Thursday of the month, at 7:30pm-9:00pm at the Little 5 Points Community Center.
These are meant as informal and semi-structured networking events to support the local activist community in ATL.
Our relationships are the most important thing – so let’s build up our social solidarity together, and get as many people in this New Kind of Army as we can!
We have an Activist Speed-Friending activity, learn more about what it really means to be an activist, and meet some of the folks on the front lines doing the work needed to transform society and transition into a better world!
If are able, please bring some food, drinks, or donations to share, and please spread the word!
People are finding out about this mostly through word of mouth on facebook so keep inviting you think might be interested in becoming an activist, deepening their activism, or supporting all people to become strong, effective leaders in our movements!
Here are the AROMA values, website, including an activist calendar, database of organizations, and an article written by one of our members:

article about AROMA:
1) We promote social justice, liberation, and have an anti-oppressive stance. We challenge ourselves and others to fight all forms of oppression, within and outside of ourselves, and resist the reproduction of oppression.
2) We prioritize the voices and leadership of those who suffer oppression or exploitation based on class, race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or immigrant status. We are in solidarity.
3) We support intersectional analyses, visions, and strategies among our various movements.
4) We believe in cultivating new community leaders and developing our leadership.
5) We believe in connecting, nurturing, and building community among new and experienced leaders to promote social justice and solidarity.
We hope to see you there this month and in the future!
Power to the People!
