Founded in Washington, D.C., on September 12, 2009, the Coalition became the first and only black-led organization to lead a march on the White House during the Obama administration.

The slogan for the August Conference is “Resist U.S. wars and occupations in the U.S. and abroad.” It is a slogan that represents the coalition’s belief that it is insufficient to simply call for peace as much of the traditional, white-led peace groups commonly do.

According to BIBC Chairman Omali Yeshitela: “The wars and threats of wars that are disrupting the peace are a consequence of imperialists, and especially U.S. imperialists, attempting to maintain a world of slavery and colonial domination. Therefore, it is also important to support the people’s resistance to imperialist domination.”

The August Conference slogan also reflects the Coalition’s belief that the conditions of existence of blacks, Mexicans and the Indigenous of the U.S. are also representative of the slavery and colonialism responsible for the creation of the existing capitalist social system.

This year’s Conference will discuss the significance of the confrontation between the U.S. and Russia over Ukraine, the U.S. “Asia Pivot” and the possibility of devastating nuclear war.

Also, in addition to addressing the situation of African people throughout Europe, the Conference will hold a workshop entitled, “There is no peace, Africa and Africans are at war,” designed to explore the violence imposed on Africa and African people throughout the world, especially in Haiti.”

The Conference is free and open to the public.
