If you’re reading this,

                                you are uncomfortable with your complicity in anti-Black racism, capitalism, imperialism, and colonialism.

You are ready to leverage a multitude of tactics and strategies, ecologically, to produce a true Black unity and mass front.

You are ready to plug into solidarity economy and cooperative efforts.

You are ready to leverage your position in the imperial core to be in solidarity with people in the Global South whose oppression is inversely proportional to your privilege.

You are ready to transcend the boundaries of borders to erect a truly Pan-Africanist framework.

And you’re looking, not for a quick fix, but for a framework that you can practically implement as a member of a broad collective.

If you’re reading this,

                                     you understand that Black unity continues to be compromised by classism, transphobia, ableism, homophobia, and interpersonal harm.

You know that many movement practices are environmentally unsustainable.

And you’re looking, not for the solution, but for a group of people with whom you can be committed to developing one. 

If you’re reading this,

                                    you’ve come to realize that, as a person resisting colonization, it is in your best interest to invest in and grow the economic power of Black liberation movements that offer the potential for solidarity economy and trade routes among non-white people.

Put simply, C.R.E.A.M was founded to fund the revolution. 400+1 believes that the economic solidarity of non-white people will be necessary to catalyze, sustain, and win revolutionary struggle. C.R.E.A.M is an effort to grow the capacity of non-Black communities of color as viable allies to the movement for Black liberation and also as radical advocates for their own self-determination.  C.R.E.A.M. initiatives are half cooperative businesses of which members are owners and half political education programs that raise the consciousness of the masses. In its current stage of development, C.R.E.A.M. is held down entirely by its steering committee, which also operates as a cooperative business.

 You’re willing to follow Black revolutionary leadership and prioritize those most marginalized.

                                  you understand that a white person’s role in Black liberation struggle is to cede power, privilege and wealth to the revolution.

You understand that it is a white person’s responsibility to find ways to do that and you understand that those tactics should never compromise or contradict the efforts made by Black revolutionaries.

The Ally Ship is a reparations core where white people can pay reparations directly to Black revolutionaries in an effort align themselves with Black revolutionary struggle rather than the white supremacy they directly benefit from.
