Northern California Anti-Racist Action (NoCARA) grew out of the mobilization to shut down the Neo-Nazi rally planned for June 26th, 2016 at the California Capitol by the Traditionalist Worker Party and Golden State Skinheads. In organizing for the mobilization, crews of anti-fascists and anti-racists from all over Northern California were brought together to form NoCARA.
NoCARA has several goals which include:
1.) Building a regional capacity for self-defense against fascism, patriarchy, and white supremacy.
2.) Combating and contesting white nationalist, right-wing extremist and Neo-Nazi groups and their ideals, as well as the forces of structural white supremacy and patriarchy that these groups seek to defend and uphold.
3.) Creating a movement and culture of resistance that new people can come into and engage with, as we in turn build power and capacity for positive change within our own communities.
