In recent weeks, our numbers have drastically gone down, which has led to an increase in violence and abuse by both police and other citizens against our fellow activists. We need to remind those in power that these streets are our streets, and we’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
Join COOR, the Central Ohio Organized Resistance, this Thursday night, to let the city of Columbus know that we’re still fighting. We’re not giving up until our voices have been heard and we get the change we need.
COOR (Central Ohio Organized Resistance) is a collective for activists and organizations in the central Ohio region dedicated to education, support, and community development. It was founded in an effort to increase our numbers and create a more unified front for the movement. We want to bring the people in our movement together, and bring folx in who have never been part of this or any movement before.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We recognize the distrust in new orgs popping up, so please reach out to us with any concerns you may have. Before we get too many messages about this: yes, we have two white women listed as organizers on this event. We have other BIPOC leadership in COOR that were not able to help us organize this specific event, but will be involved in future events.
