Oak Roots Collective is a California-based anarchist group that was formed after President Donald Trump was elected in November 2016.

On Facebook, the Oak Roots Collective describes themselves as "an umbrella Collective of coalitions in Ventura County and San Fernando Valley, dedicated to community empowerment and action. The collective was formed after the Trump regime took power and has participated and organized numerous rallies, protests, and marches."

They write:

"With the rise of fascism, the capitalist government is holding on hard to the fraying threads of racism, sexism, xenophobia, and classism in a desperate attempt to maintain their power. The powers that be have threatened the lives and well-being of everyone, and resistance in all shapes and forms has become vital in protecting our communities and liberties. Now is the time to link arms and sing the song of resistance, to build relationships of comradery and create self sustaining communities that make police, corporations, and government obsolete."[1]
