The mission of Revolution School is to give teenage activists, organizers, and community members the tools necessary to create positive social change and defend our communities from systemic oppression.
The mission of Revolution School is to give teenage activists, organizers, and community members the tools necessary to create positive social change and defend our communities from systemic oppression.

The vision of Revolution School is to create knowledgeable, empowered, engaged cohorts of revolutionaries that work through and against power structures to create equitable and just communities.

Much of the work to put together a Revolution School in Lawrence, Kansas is being done voluntarily by local activists and organizers from Black, LGBTQIA, and POC communities. We  already have people who've pledged to provide revolutionary apprentice stipends ($50 each), but we are seeking further assistance for the following:
✅$900: Apprentice Stipends 
$450: Rental Space
✅$150: Morning Snacks
$450: Lunches
$150: Transportation
$600: Fund for Future Day-long Workshops
--------
$2,700 TOTAL

This amount will be enough to launch a Revolution School that will take place August 6th-10th, 2018. We will host 18, 15-19 year old apprentices who will engage in Life Skills, Radical Academics, Direct Action Training, and Revolutionary Art modules. We are also bringing in outside organizations as guest speakers, and we are in the process of seeking local food vendors to donate catered lunches to the cause. If you or someone you know can provide this kind of support without involving an exchange of dollars, please reach out to us.

Additional funds beyond this goal could be used on notebooks, pens, art supplies, 18 copies of "Radical Hope: Letters of Love and Dissent in Dangerous Times" (ISBN: 9780525435136), and can also be rolled over for additional Revolution Schools in the future. We will also gladly accept these items as a donation.

There are so many brilliant, young minds out there who deserve a platform to grow, express their desires for justice, move desire for justice into action, and build community. In Teaching Community: A Pedagogy of Hope, bell hooks revealed that, “[e]ducation as the practice of freedom affirms healthy self-esteem in students as it promotes their capacity to be aware and live consciously. It teaches them to reflect and act in ways that further self-actualization, rather than conformity to the status quo.”

Let's put this into practice, because our youth deserve this and more.
