About WRC

The Workers Revolutionary Collective a grassroots organization of the organized working and oppressed people of, by, and for the members of the community to abolish our shared struggles and end the exploitation of the working class.

 

We believe through observation and participation of collective non-violent struggle actions towards ending our shared struggles we the people will grant ourselves economic & social liberation.

 

Firmly rooted in revolutionary philosophy WRC educates towards non-violent struggle actions to expose the moral bankruptcy of the capitalist institutions that exploit working & oppressed people and perpetuates class division.

 

WRC's exploration of theory in our principals creates an open platform for care, understanding, and mutual aid of working & oppressed people. WRC, including members in representative situations and partnered events, must never advocate in partisan interest or express preference of any political candidate. 

Theory 

Freedom can not be won outside the confines of economic injustice and class division. 

Dialiectical Materialism

Human ideas are a result of physical interactions, especially those related to economics, and are constantly in the process of changing.

Proletariat Demands 

Demands, founded on the Black Panther Party's Ten Point Program, that focus on the historical roots of daily injustices faced by working and oppressed communities

WRC is organized in a cooperative structure to ensure the organization reflects its members and the communities it serves. The members of WRC come from all walks of life, each bringing their one of a kind perspective forged from their encounter with our common struggles. They are unemployed; artist, lawyers, and manufacturers, underpaid; drivers, teachers, and service workers, the working poor, indebted students and those alienated by; debt, health disabilities, and the criminal justice system. They are the dispossessed and disenfranchised that suffer violently everyday.

 

WRC approach is to first understand those directly impacted by our shared struggles and build a systemic view of the issues in our communities. With systematic understanding of the community's shared struggles, WRC organizes tools and resources for community members to move toward collective non-violent struggle actions to alleviate shared struggles.

Our mission is to transfer the power of our communities to the working and oppressed people to liberate the people by ending the cycle of reliance on external exploitative institutions.
