The R.E.A.C.H (Revolutionary Empowerment and Community Help) Center formerly known as The Long Beach Infoshop is in desperate need of funds! We need to raise 0.00 within the next few days to remain open!. We have been closed for the past week due to construction and remodeling to refocus our efforts to utilize our space to it's fullest potential. We believe this will help us achieve our goal of reaching out to the greater Long Beach community. We are striving to stay open so this goal can become reality. Various groups work out of, and rely on the REACH center , such as Food Not Bombs, which feeds the hungry every Sunday, POWER (People Opposing War Empires and Rulers), an anarchist anti-war group currently organizing for the upcoming anti-war conference this October 27th, the Anarchist Defense Committee, Cop Watch..etc.

If you would like to help you can drop of or send donations to:

If you have any items listed below we could really use them.

We, as the REACH Center collective, seek to liberate through unity, self-education, and community empowerment. We seek to work with people in the local area to build a real community, based on mutual aid and cooperation. Â A community where everyone has access to a healthy and non oppressive life. Â Â Â Education is critical to empowerment and liberation, as itenables people to understand the history of oppression and stand-up toexploitation. Â However, we rejectinstitutional, top-down education, which seeks to enforce hierarchy and conformity. In opposition, the REACH Center space enables people to empower themselves, which results in people being actively engaged in empowering the greater Long Beach community.

Society's very survival currently depends on corporations and government entities that exist to oppress, and destroy the selfdetermination of our communities. Â Wewish to counter this destructive cycle. As a space promoting community empowerment, we seek to help actualize aself-sufficient community, in which people rely on each other, not governmentinstitutions. Â This form of mutual aid helps all people in the community, as opposed to government programs whichoften only help the privileged. Â We want to help this community regain power over its own existance. We seek to further this goal through such programs as Food Not Bombs [an anti-militarism group that distributes free foodto protest poverty and war], Community Gardening, Copwatch [an anti-police brutality network], community self-defense programs, wildlands restoration, and FreeSchool classes and workshops that promote mutual aid between community members.

This collective supports diversity and a respect for differences. Â This is promoted through mutual respect and support of differences. We do not label people for their beliefs and we support collective members' right to evolve and change their ideas. Â To ensure that all voices are heard, we work through consensus decision making which seeks to ensure that each member of the collective has an equal voice in the group, with no opinions being silenced. Â Â The way we organize ourselves mirrors how we would like society to be organized. Â As such, we support the development, creation, and advancement of all other infoshops and community groups that promote positive social change. We seek asociety and a collective that is anti-authoritarian, culturally diverse,accepting of racial diversity, feminist, gay positive, biocentric, and worker and union supportive.
