The New Breed Artist and Activist Network is a multiracial group of party people and change-makers. Members come together as creative collaborators, friends, lovers and life partners to affect and create transformative change – both within and outside of themselves. The group is dedicated to the dismantling of fear, separatism, racism, sexism, white supremacy and the heteropatriarchy through relationship building, shared storytelling, personal transformation and political action.
Building upon a call to action found in a Prince song and the work of other creative revolutionaries, the movement was founded to heal, save and change a world that is on the brink of its own destruction by creating and promoting community, intimacy, empowerment and liberation.
The New Breed was founded as a private membership organization in Westchester County, New York in the summer of 2020. Basic membership is free and open to all like-minded funky folks – with paid memberships available to individuals and groups who would like to start their own New Breed parties and become leaders in the movement.
The philosophical foundation of the New Breed consists of 24 founding principles, divided into three different groups of eight:
The principles are detailed further in the New Breed Credo, describing the mission, work and philosophy of the organization in three sentences.
The Credo serves the basis of the New Breed Love Manifesto entitled “Stand Up! Organize!” The Manifesto expands upon the 24 principles of the movement in three sections: Creation, Change and Spirit.
The Manifesto is currently available for purchase on the Amazon Kindle store (see below).
All new members of the New Breed get free access to our Manifesto upon joining the network.
