THE STORY:

WHAT IS PAPER REVOLUTION:

Paper Revolution is a decentralized collective composing of various cells which act independently in pursuit of a freer and more joyous world. Together, we help coordinate and organize events around the planet to inspire change.

History is not something that happens to people — it is the activity of people. In every moment, in every decision and gesture, we make our culture, our life stories, our world, whether we take responsibility for this ourselves or ascribe this power to executives, politicians, pop stars, economic systems, or deities. Paper Revolution is one of many manifestations of an underground network through which we work to realize our dreams. Together we will work to take the reins of our lives and make our history rather than using the same energy to insist we are being made by it.

THE PROPOSAL:

Paper Revolution is social origami, much like paper – the society in which we live is as we make of it. Together, we can fold the corners to create something new – something better. It is our hopes to continue to unite people to instill humanity and human dignity into the world once again. We will accomplish this by raising awareness, educating individuals to become self-actualized and proactive within their local communities, and by creating innovative ideas as a global collective.

SANCTUARY FOR HUMANITY:

Intentional communities are pioneers in sustainable living, personal and cultural transformation, and peaceful social evolution. Our overall goal is to create a culture of individuals that remain engaged and connected with both their local and global communities.

Our primary focus will be upon the creation of a ‘Sanctuary For Humanity’ in order to provide a physical space for collective members to live. We will also invite other existing intentional communities to use the same innovative tools that we will be using in order to continue create sanctuaries globally.

Sanctuaries will not only implement the newer innovations that we introduce, but they will also incorporate other well known practices to sustainably provide for the needs of those that live both in and near a sanctuary. We want to help support the communities around each sanctuary by educating individuals to be self-actualized, sustainable individuals.

Eventually, we will introduce neighboring communities to our direct-democracy based system and advocate for our neighbors to become a part of Paper Revolution’s sanctuary project. As we group together we will work to build up the resources and relationships needed to make a community a success, while establishing the foundations of what will become the Paper Revolution Sanctuary for Humanity.

SATELLITE SANCTUARIES:

A satellite sanctuary will be a mobile educational hub, consisting of an area to distribute information along with a sheltered space to host events, teach-ins, and retreats. These satellite sanctuaries will be used to fulfill a diverse range of purposes, for instance, in the event of a massive need for mutual aid, satellite sanctuaries can mobilize to provide relief.

To continue providing to the revolution, the satellite sanctuaries will also provide refuge and safety to direct actions throughout their tours. Satellite sanctuaries can effectively be used to provide support for blockade events, large marches, occupations, and other types of tactical protests. The satellite sanctuary teams will be equipped and have individuals along to provide alternative-media support along with street-aid, and other resources.

FUNDRAISER-SPECIFIC QUESTIONS:

The goal is currently set to raise $7,500.00.

Funds raised for "Paper Revolution" will go toward building our first 'Satellite Sanctuary' structure. We are first building a 'satellite structure' so that we can create our first tour to help promote our overall project. A 'satellite structure' will also allow us to create an encampment as we build our first collective 'Sanctuary for Humanity'.

The costs associated with providing a structure are currently estimated to be over $4,500.

We have many other various needs including technological equipment and tools to help make our first effort a success. We will also be needing to continue fundraising post-launch in order to help cover the expenses of a tour and continued collective action.

We will be accepting in-kind donations to help alleviate our monetary need. A detailed needs list will be released soon. If you believe that you have equipment or material that can help us, please contact us!
