MACC Information & Outreach Project
MACC Information & Outreach Project (MIOP) is a working group that focuses on promoting anarchist cultural and educational opportunities in NYC for broad range of people interested in radical ideas. MIOP does this by sponsoring and organizing cultural events that promote anarchism and revolutionary ideas. MIOP creates informational projects that help educate members of MACC and the public about the history and philosophy of anarchism. MIOP supports outreach efforts and provides orientations to anarchist culture. MIOP seeks to add cultural and educational elements to our revolutionary project.
