Committee member highlight – Wendy Snyder
Wendy Snyder is a member of the African People’s Solidarity Committee
The African People’s Solidarity Committee (APSC) was formed and is led by the African People’s Socialist Party, which leads the Uhuru Movement working for the liberation of African people inside the U.S. and around the world. Based on the strategy and campaigns of the African People’s Socialist Party, APSC organizes in the white community to unite white people with our true human interest in overturning the pedestal of the white world and parasitic capitalism, that was founded on the enslavement of African people and the genocide of the indigenous peoples.
Wendy Snyder joined the Uhuru Movement in 1992, the same year that African people in Los Angeles rose up in rebellion following the all-white jury verdict acquitting the 12 LAPD in the beating of Rodney King. She is the National Coordinator of Sustainable Membership for the Uhuru Solidarity Movement and invites white allies and others to join the mass organization coordinated by APSC that provides an expression of white solidarity and unity with reparations to the African community and a principled relationship with the struggle of African people to overturn 500 years of oppression. She believes that the philosophy of the Uhuru Movement, called African Internationalism, is one that explains the world in order to change it for all humanity.
