What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Are you outraged by injustice but don’t know what to do? New to activism or looking to get more connected? Want to support your community in solidarity and love? You are invited to join Activists Recruiting, Organizing and Mentoring in Atlanta (AROMA) for our metro-Atlanta meet and greets every LAST Thursday of the month. These are informal and semi-structured networking events to support the local activist community in ATL. Our relationships are the most important resource we have to win the world we need. You can expect to participate in Activist Speed-Friending, hear more about what it really means to organize for justice, and meet some of the folks on the front lines already doing the work needed to transform society and transition into a better world! You can also expect to start to see how you can be the change, and invitations to participate in efforts for justice right away. If you are able, please BRING FOOD, drinks, or donations to share, and please SPREAD THE WORD by inviting your friends and neighbors! Hope to see you there! POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

Come join us at the Campbellton Community Garden! This garden will increase the vitality of the neighborhood by countering the dire food desert that exists in Venetian Hills and Fort McPherson. The garden site is on a vacant lot adopted through the AgLanta "Grows-A-Lot" Program. Through this program, what is now an empty space with will be repurposed to become a force for good, transforming the way we eat, grow, and live in our neighborhood. The Campbellton community garden has the potential to begin generating fresh and healthy options for our neighbors. Join us at 1597 Campbellton Rd. SW to build community through growing fresh food!
