RUNNING DOWN THE WALLS 2020
Since 2008, NYC Anarchist Black Cross has been organizing annual events in solidarity with Running Down the Walls (RDTW), which was started by ABCF-Los Angeles in 1999. More than fundraisers for the ABCF Warchest and local organizations, RDTW events have become hubs where folks from overlapping radical and revolutionary communities—multigender, multiracial, and multigenerational—come together and socialize after an enthusiastic five kilometers of running, walking, biking, skating, and rolling.
