Righteous Rage Institute for Social Justice and Community Organizing


Social justice movements and grassroots community organizing in America have always served as the great human rights equalizer, especially for those who found themselves at the bottom rungs of society and today we are seeing that now more than ever the deep need to support and sustain those same historically marginalized communities locally, across the county and globally. It is an absolute imperative that those who stand for social justice, especially those of color, gain a fast and profound understanding of where we are as movement leaders and community organizers in need of sharpening our skill-set to advance MOMENTS INTO MOVEMENTS in the midst of global crisis and unforeseen acts of injustice. Without a fundamental understanding and the accompanying action programs to go with it, social justice in general and Black Indiginious People of Color (BIPOC) in particular, will quickly move deeper and more rapidly into the permanent underclass of our society.  

Righteous Rage Institute creates a powerful pathway educating emerging leaders, to transform acts of injustice from MOMENTS INTO MOVEMENTS for change, while generating a pipeline designed to propel social justice leaders and grassroots community organizers forward in order to not only remedy past inequities that permeate into our communities and society today but also, to sustain, organize and educate BIPOC communities during crisis, acts of injustice and far far beyond.
