“For the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house. They may allow us to temporarily beat him at his own game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change. Racism and homophobia are real conditions of all our lives in this place and time. I urge each one of us here to reach down into that deep place of knowledge inside herself and touch that terror and loathing of any difference that lives here. See whose face it wears. Then the personal as the political can begin to illuminate all our choices.”
― Audre Lorde
Riot with Me was born out of the political and civil unrest of the modern times. It has no agenda but to equip those who aim to be on the right side of history with the tools to protect themselves in a time of injustice. There are difficult times ahead as fascism rears its ugly head on citizens globally.

You cannot predict when the next protest will be. You cannot predict when the police will escalate it to a riot. You can, however, have tools at the ready to protect yourself and your peers as it unfolds. The police always show up to a protest ready to riot, so it is suggested to always have the bare minimum available to you to avoid an unfortunate position.
In addition to selling protective gear for a protest, Riot with Me aims to always be a force of good by exposing corruption as it is revealed and sharing information from those in the community who share the same beliefs.
