Our mission is to be a voice for the oppressed and marginalized by uniting and mobilizing the community to end social injustice through film production and social campaigning.
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” -Proverbs 31:8-9
In the summer of 2009, Speak Up Revolution was started by a few people who wanted to “speak up” for the oppressed people of the world and try to truly make a difference. After many successful fundraisers for different local and international charities, the decision was made to create an organization that would bring awareness to social injustices and provide a solution for community problems. SUR recently released its first short film “Oblivion: Story of the Unseen Girl,” a dramatization of a human trafficking victim in San Diego. Along with the film, they launched a social campaign “6 Days to End Slavery,” designed to bring about awareness of the issue of sex trafficking and give people ways to make a difference. We believe that the teachings of Jesus Christ call us to be a voice for the voiceless and a powerful example of Christ’s unending love to this lost world.
Through art, music, cinematography, and a desire to be a voice for the oppressed, Speak Up Revolution seeks to enact true change.
