About the A-Space

The A-Space Anarchist Social Center is a storefront space that aims to facilitate anti-authoritarian social struggle as well as provide space for cultural events. We want to create a place for face-to-face interactions to take place beyond and against the systems that keep us separated, whether through art, organizing, food, or discussion.

All events are expected to be anti-oppressive. Anyone organizing an event within the space is expected to ensure the event is not authoritarian, pro-state, capitalist, patriarchal, white supremacist, cissexist, ableist, or fall in line with any ideology that fosters domination. Additionally all individuals in the space are encouraged to take initiative to prevent and disrupt any of the above-mentioned behavior within the space. The a-space is a drug and alcohol-free space.  Event organizers are responsible for upholding these standards.
