Carl Dix is a founding member, and a representative, of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA (RCP). He is a regular contributor to Revolution newspaper (formerly titled Revolutionary Worker).
Dix has long been associated with Bob Avakian, the chairman of the RCP, and credits Avakian's leadership as the key factor in Dix's ability to remain a revolutionary while many other 1960's activists have given up on revolutionary politics.
In interviews, writings and talks, Dix has addressed questions of imperialist war, revolutionary struggles, the oppression of Black people, along with many other issues. He has held a series of public dialogues with Princeton University professor, and author, Cornel West. The theme of their dialogue has been: In the Age of Obama: What Future for Our Youth?"
In 1996, Dix co-founded the October 22nd Coalition to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of Generation. Most recently, Dix has been a central figure in the campaign to Stop "Stop and Frisk" aimed at opposing the New York Police Department's efforts to stop hundreds of thousands of people in New York City and frisk them for weapons, drugs or other items. That campaign estimates that at the current pace, the NYPD will stop over 700,000 people in 2011.
