Cell A65’s mission is to fight for the liberation and justice of all people through direct action and radical community healing.
Although we are most known for our radical direct actions Cell A65 is more than just planning protests. Cell A65's mission is to fight for the liberation and justice of all people through direct action and radical community healing. This means not only planning different types of protest and awareness actions but radical social healing by assisting the community where the government has, for too long, oppressed and denied resources. Community healing has many different looks, such as feeding healthy lunches to children, collecting and donating coats, working with the homeless, and much more! We will liberate our people through healing the communities broken by systemic racism while also holding these systems accountable with direct action.
Cell A65 was founded during the peak of the George Floyd protests in Hoover, Alabama. The Executive Director and founder, Satura Dudley, was arrested under a bogus warrant for inciting a riot that never occurred. The warrant was a clear attempt by the Hoover police department to scare and silence people's voices. In the cells, Cell A6 and Cell A5, of the Hoover jail sat protestors and they began to organize; creating a radical group determined to fight for the liberation of all. These organizers named Cell A65 after the jail cells they were kept in, symbolizing the determination and power of the people even when the oppressor attempts to silence us.
