The Inaugural Meeting of the New York Forum

Midtown693 words

It was 88 degrees in Manhattan on Saturday, May 28, 2016, when Counter-Currents launched a new venture, The New York Forum. The New York Forum is modeled on the London Forum, which is the now the most important organization in the British Nationalist scene after the collapse of the British National Party and the subsequent wave of party fatigue. 

Like the London Forum, the New York Forum is a private, invitation-only gathering. Although the speakers and their talks will be made public after the events, who is in the audience and they say are private and off the record.

The purpose of the New York Forum is metapolitics: speading ideas and building community. There are speakers, opportunities for socializing and networking, and tables with books and other literature and merchandise.

Why a forum in New York City? First, New York is our top city in terms of readership, which makes perfect sense. The primary cause of white awareness of race differences, the Jewish question, and the negative consequences of multiculturalism is direct experience, and New York offers such experiences in abundance. Second, there are millions of people — and thus large numbers of racially aware whites — within a 3-hour commute of New York City. Finally, New York is a transportation hub, so many of our people pass through here.

At the first meeting of the New York Forum, we had four speakers: Greg Johnson, F. Roger Devlin, Gregory Hood, and Adrian Davies. More than 4o people were in attendance, which Adrian Davies assured us was a very auspicious start. Five authors of Counter-Currents books were present and signed their books: Collin Cleary, James O’Meara, and Michael Polignano, as well as Greg Johnson and F. Roger Devlin. After the event, more than half those present went out to dinner. In subsequent days, I have heard reports of connections made and friendships and collaborations born. All told, the meeting was a resounding success.

We plan to hold four New York Forum meets per year. The next ones will take place in July September, and next January. Plans are already afoot to set up a Washington, D.C. Forum as well. Eventually, I hope there are similar events every month in every major metropolitan area in North America.

I want to thank our speakers, the New York Forum team, and everybody who attended. Special thanks are due Jez Turner and the rest of team from the London Forum, who continue to set a standard worth emulating.

If you want to see more projects like the New York Forum, please become a Counter-Currents Donor. Counter-Currents wasn’t mean to be a non-profit, it just turned out that way. Selling books just breaks even. It is your donations that keep us in the game.

If you want to send a non-tax deductible donation to Counter-Currents Publishing, you can make two different types of donations:

  • A single donation of any size.
  • A recurring donation of any size.

Recurring donations are particularly helpful, since they allow us better to predict and plan for the future. We have several levels for recurring donations. Please visit our Donations page for more information.

We can also customize the amount of a monthly donation.

There are several ways to make one-time donations:

  • The easiest is with PayPal. Just use the following button:

Also, as we first announced in October of 2015, you now have two possible destinations for your donations: Counter-Currents Publishing and the Counter-Currents Foundation. The Counter-Currents Foundation is a US 501c3 educational corporation. Donations to it are deductible from US federal income taxes. The purpose of the Counter-Currents Foundation is specifically to promote scholarship and translations connected to the European New Right and allied movements. If you wish to earmark a donation to the Counter-Currents Foundation, or to discuss a particular project you would like to support, please contact me in advance at [email protected].

    This is a positive sign. Glad to hear of it. I’m interested in getting any readers in my area together, possibly to host forums or gatherings like the one in NY.

    Networking, community building, and building a speaking circuit.

    How does one get an invitation? I’ve been reading this site for some time. Admittedly, I haven’t made a donation. But is that the criterion? I don’t mind if it is. I guess what I’m saying is, how precisely does one get invited?

      Well, I don’t know who you are, so it is hard to invite you to things.

        It’s not our Joe?

        I’d like to make it out once to take you, James, Margot, and our Philly homeboy to dinner one night.

          Naw it is another Joe.

          That is nice. Sadly, you won’t be taking us out in SC.

    Mr Johnson ,
    What are the chances of having a Forum in Central Ohio ?

    • Greg Johnson
      Posted June 1, 2016 at 5:13 am | Permalink

      That would have to be organized by people in Ohio.

    It’s surprising that Gregory Hood was speaking at an event.

    Listening to Gregory Hood in his own voice as opposed to reading his amazing articles really piques my interest.

    By any chance, is there any material of the Hood himself speaking?

  7. Posted May 31, 2016 at 10:07 pm | Permalink

    July??

    Alright!

    I will plan ahead and might be able to make it next time.

    If only I was in New York…

    how come I wasn’t informed of this meeting?

      Who are you?

        I just assumed my invite was lost in the mail. Purchased Mr. Hoods new book immediately upon release. He is a gifted writer with a keen mind.

    I had a wonderful time! I didn’t even get to talk to everyone I would have liked to because of how interesting the people I did speak to were.

    Here’s hoping for a Philadelphia Forum….
