Change The Ref (CTR) gives the kids of today the tools they need to be empowered to make changes to critical issues that affect our nation, through education, conversation, and activism. It uses urban art and nonviolent creative confrontation to expose the disastrous effects of the mass shooting pandemic. It also brings focus to the NRA’s corrupt maneuvers to buy lawmakers, while forcing solutions which are essential to healing mass shooting victims’ families’ lifelong grief.
Manuel and Patricia Oliver are committed to making sure that the life of their son Joaquin, who was one of the 17 victims of the Parkland shooting, and the lives of the other 16 victims are never forgotten.
Change The Ref’s ultimate goal is to give the young generation of survivors and victims a disrupting voice to help lead the way to change – a more peaceful future. #NeverAgain.
Change The Ref is an organization housed under the March For Our Lives Foundation.
