NYC Anarchist Bookfair Collective
Don't Leave your Friends Behind: Anarchism & Supporting Parents and Children

Anarchism challenges us to create personal and social change but often provides no support for mothers, fathers, and other caretakers of children who try to do so. Parents need support to continue in the scene. Otherwise, as activists get older and start having kids, they drop out and it remains a movement of 20-somethings. We need to recognize that parents have specific needs in order to continue participating (just as others have needs which are often accommodated). By valuing the involvement and work of radical parents, we form a more vibrant culture of resistance and, by including them in our activities now, we teach the young a vision of a more equitable future. This will be a participatory workshop with discussion between both parents and non-parents on the need for support and how childless allies can support their comrades' continued participation in the movement.


This workshop will be presented by China Martens, Vikki Law, Jennifer Silverman and Amy Hamilton.


China Martens, editor of "The Future Generation" and mom of a 19-year-old, will talk about her experiences in organizing the Kidz Corner at the Mid-Atlantic Radical Bookfair in 2007. Vikki Law is a writer, photographer and mother. For the past two years, she has been interviewing anarchist mothers about the support they receive from their fellow radicals.Jennifer Silverman will address specific ways in which activists can be allies to parents of children with special needs. Amy Hamilton, a parent at the Brooklyn Free School, will discuss intergenerational education models and movement building.
