Join the CAWS – Cascadians Against White Supremacy

Welcome to the Cascadians Against White Supremacy Workgroup

CAWS (Cascadians Against White Supremacy) is a non-partisan, volunteer organization aimed at educating about and acting against white supremacist action within the Cascadia bioregion.

We do this via independently run workgroups and semi-annual CAWS summits, which feature TEDx-style personal and educational presentations, musical guests, and performances. Each summit culminates in resistance art making workshops, sponsored by Cascadia Underground.

 

HOW DO I JOIN THE CAWS?

If you’re interested in fighting white supremacy within the Cascadia bioregion, here are ways you can get involved with CAWS:

  1. Join a work group. This is an all-hands-on-deck movement! If you want to take responsibility for networking with frontline groups, join in on postering campaigns, help organize the next CAWS Summit, or have some sweet merch ideas – there’s a workgroup waiting for you to start or join!
  2. Give a presentation at a CAWS summit. Whether you’re passionate about the history of WS within Cascadia, are trained in conflict de-escalation tactics, want to talk about your personal experiences, or want to perform your anti-racist or POC-perspective art for a new audience – let us know!
  3. Share, promote, and bring awareness to CAWS events and workgroups. Talk to people within your network about CAWS, or post on social media.
  4. Make suggestions. See something we’re missing? Let us know, and consider leading a workgroup on this topic or interest!
