AROMA says
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/movement intros every last Thursday of the month, at 7:30pm SHARP.

We will 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!

Please bring some food, drinks, or wine to share, and/or donations and friends. People are finding out about this mostly through word of mouth on facebook so keep inviting!

This will be at the Little Five Point Community Center until further notice.

Please invite everyone you think might be interested in becoming an activist, deepening their activism, or supporting all people to become strong leaders in our movements!

Here are the AROMA values, website, including a database of organizations, and an article written by one of our members:

AROMA Values:

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.
