About Us

Atlanta Resistance Medics (ARM) is a non-hierarchal, consensus run affinity group of activists and health care professionals who seek to promote health and wellness within the activist community.

We provide street medic care at mass demonstrations and marches, facilitate health and wellness workshops and skillshares, and empower our community with information and education to help themselves.

ARM was initially a loose group of individuals functioning as the medical committee of the Occupy Atlanta encampment. We staffed a volunteer medical tent 24/7 and organized volunteers to provide first aid for demonstrations. A group of us wanted to see these efforts transform into something larger and independent of the Occupy movement. ARM was officially formed on November 20th, 2011, after a weekend long street medic training provided by members of Mutual Aid Street Medics.

We are not open to new membership at this time.
