Children's Books

The organization sells a number of children's books, some of which are also available for purchase of Amazon.

The featured books promote white superiority with Aryan-allegory protagonists and by having the protagonists encounter cultural situations and racial stereotypes, including African Americans, KKK members, corrupt politicians, and issues such as Planned Parenthood clinics and compulsive military service. There are also  direct references to slogans used in Nazi Germany.

Events and Contests

The organization is attempting to establish an online – and possibly offline – community by holding events and online contests for its artists that are open to anyone sharing its worldview. For example, on its website it posted registration for a festival it says will include pro-white film, music and arts for "Alt-Right" and "Pro-Whites." As of this writing, no date or location for the event has been posted.


Registration page for the event

So far, the organization has held five online music and film contests offering cash prizes. In October 2019, it held a film contest with a cash prize, which was won by a European duo. The films entered in the contest were uploaded to the organization's now-defunct YouTube channel.
