About Us 

We ARE Revolutionary is committed to addressing the underlying causes of adverse childhood experiences, oppression, and violence in our community by repairing families and equipping them with the tools and knowledge necessary to engage in the political process and create positive change. 

We recognize that many communities are plagued by systemic poverty, oppression and violence, and we believe that the key to addressing these issues is by repairing families and creating a sense of empowerment through political engagement.

Through our work, we aim to create a world where all individuals have equal access to resources and opportunities, and where communities are united in their pursuit of justice and equity. That's why we've dedicated our time and resources to providing these individuals with the tools they need to succeed in school, work, and life.

 We do this through five main initiatives:

We Are Revolutionary Community Empowerment Programs:


1. TRAILO (The Real Adventure is Located Outside) Program: This program organizes youth by offering trips that introduce them to diverse career opportunities and engage them in conversations with politicians. By intertwining politics with real-life experiences, TRAILO bridges the gap between the political sphere and everyday life. The program also focuses on nurturing healthy parent-child relationships, fostering empowerment, and advocating for families as a whole.


2. Legal Eagle Program: We Are Revolutionary's Legal Eagle Program is a comprehensive initiative designed to equip young individuals with a deep understanding of the legal system, their rights, and the political process. Through interactive sessions, participants delve into criminal and civil court procedures, gain insights into political workings, and engage in mock congressional hearings and trials. This program aims to empower youth with legal literacy and political awareness, enabling them to confidently navigate their communities and the legal system.


3. Revolutionary Art Program: The Revolutionary Art Program by We Are Revolutionary harnesses the power of art to illuminate pressing social issues from the unique perspective of those directly impacted. Through this program, participants will engage in creative projects that drive concrete legislative and policy change, ensuring that art serves as a catalyst for real progress. 


4. Revolutionary Healing Program: This program consists of a 6-module training and organized space for healing from intergenerational trauma. By combining meditation, mindfulness practices, and addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), participants are given the tools for rest, repair, and restoration, fostering their well-being and resilience.


5. Revolutionary Camp: A leadership development and political education program that spans three days, Revolutionary Camp offers both overnight and daytime options. This immersive experience provides participants with essential skills for leadership and engages them in political discussions, preparing them to actively contribute to their communities.


6. Mutual Aid Program: The Mutual Aid Program focuses on supporting community members facing various challenges, including home displacement due to fires, refugees seeking refuge, and providing free food, clothing, transportation, and other essentials. This program demonstrates We Are Revolutionary's commitment to fostering a strong and caring community that uplifts and supports one another.


7. The Capital Region Community Support Network (CRCSN): The Capital Region Community Support Network (CRCSN) is a Crisis Response program created with the purpose of redefining community policing. CRCSN empowers peers and community members to provide crucial crisis assistance. Our program is steadfastly dedicated to delivering efficient and compassionate support during crises, offering timely guidance to essential resources and aid for individuals in need. CRCSN embodies our resolute commitment to revolutionize crisis response practices, ultimately aimed at bolstering community safety and resilience.
