The Revolutionary Action Movement or RAM was a black nationalist Maoist political organization founded in 1962 and dedicated to the destruction of capitalism and white supremacy in America. The group was led by Muhammad Ahmad in 1970.

In 1963 RAM joined with local members of the NAACP in a Philadelphia demonstration against racial discriminations in building trade unions. Later RAM attempted to organize in inner cities and college campuses.

The group supported Robert F. Williams, a fugitive who fled to Cuba.
