We want to change the story

We cannot stand on the sidelines. We are driven to act.

The Revolution Tour teaches a message of resilience, hope, and anti-bullying that complements school programmes. The Revolution Tour exists to serve students and teachers to bring hope and remind students that they have people who can support them and people they can talk to.

Our job is not done until every young person knows that there is hope and that they have a better future.
