Based on the strategy and campaigns of the African People’s Socialist Party, the
Uhuru Solidairty Movement organizes in white communities.
We call on white people to unite with our true human interest in recognizing that
the struggle of African people for liberation and justice has a relationship to the
fact that our lifestyle rests on a pedestal of African oppression. APSC organizes
forums, demonstrations, studies and events to educate other white people about
the true history of this country, founded on slavery and genocide, and what we can
do to support the struggle of African people
