Welcome to our website! Please follow us on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for daily news and analysis. Our email newsletter “BRRN Letter” has occasional updates on our writings, activities and projects.
Black Rose Anarchist Federation / Federación Anarquista Rosa Negra (BRRN) is a political organization with locals in over a dozen cities sharing a common set of politics and working towards a shared strategic vision of how to build “popular power” in workplaces, neighborhoods, schools and all sectors of society. Our organizing work is centered on building mass movements such as tenant unions, neighborhood assemblies, workplace campaigns, student unions, prisoner organizing, and in defense of communities resisting criminalization and deportations.
If you are interested in learning more about our politics we recommend you start with our core organizational documents: our Mission Statement, Role of the Revolutionary Organization and Points of Unity.
