The Heads Up Collective is a white anti-racist, anti-imperialist project. We
are rooted in the global justice and anti-war movements. We developed
through the mass actions that rocked the WTO in Seattle in 1999 and through
opposition to the right-wing military advances of the U.S. government
launched at home and abroad after the devastating attacks on Sept. 11th, 2001.
The Heads Up Collective works from the foundation that all people have the
right to housing, food, health-care, meaningful work and healthy
communities. In short, we believe in the need for revolutionary change and
the liberation of all people from the systems of white supremacy,
patriarchy, capitalism, heterosexism, the gender binary system and
The goals of the Heads Up Collective are:
1. To support organizations led by radical organizers of color working against the war and its domestic impacts.
2. Develop and support anti-racist analysis, practice and leadership in mostly white sections of the global justice and anti-war movements.
3. Create spaces that encourage a growing commitment to anti-racism in white communities.
