The Tubman Brown Organization is an anti-racist, feminist, pro-queer, pro-gun, pro-revolution organization based in Philadelphia. Our goal is to help the poor communities of the city already defending themselves from the violence of the status quo.

What We Do

We hold self-defense trainings and study group meetings.

Immediate, Intermediary Goals

Development of a revolutionary praxis in Philadelphia.

Development of subsistence infrastructure for poor/working class people in Philadelphia.

Abolition of the punitive state: the police, prisons, jails, courts, etc. in Philadelphia.

End Goals

Worker’s control of the production process.

The construction of “a society in which the full and free development of every individual is the ruling principle.”

Free healthcare, housing, education, and other necessities of life, for all.

Abolition of capitalism, sexism, racism, homophobia, and all class relations.
