When corporations and the state use their influence and resources to put profits over our lives, it becomes our duty to fight back. They may have the resources, but they will never have what we have, the power of the people.
“The people have to have power – it belongs to the people” – Fred Hampton

We believe in expanding and strengthening democracy by building collective power and uniting communities.
We believe in building safe neighborhoods without sacrificing justice. There needs to be an investment in structures that prevent crime and give people a second chance, instead of tearing families apart through repressive law enforcement and sentencing.
