R.Evolución Latina is an organization that activates individual and collective human growth through artistic experiences for transformation and social change. A Revolution of Evolution, Making a difference through the Arts.
To grow as a strong organization that empowers and unites the Latino community with full capacity to manage and expand our programs that inspire lives through the arts.
Creed of Inclusivity
In order for there to be INCLUSIVENESS we must be JUST and FAIR in ALL PROCESSES. We must LISTEN, SPEAK OUT, and ACT. LISTEN. It may be uncomfortable along the way, but as we listen we GROW and EVOLVE. And as we grow, we must SPEAK OUT. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE when we MOBILIZE. We encourage you to use your PASSION to ACT. As we continue to fight to dismantle the systems of injustice, we know it will not happen overnight. During this heavy time, SILENCE is not the answer. LOVE IN ACTION is what is needed most RIGHT NOW. Whether it be the senseless violence against a person or community of color or marginalized individuals, we, R.Evolución Latina, say their names and continue to FIGHT FOR JUSTICE alongside our brothers and sisters. LOVE is the only constant through all of this chaos & destruction.
In order for there to be a REVOLUTION, we must first EVOLVE, and in our EVOLUTION we condemn any and all hate, racism or violence toward any group of people. We stand by our Asian American/Pacific Islander community as we do with the black community and anyone subjected to discrimination of any kind.
RL is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity organization. All participants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or parent/pregnancy or veteran status.

“Once a pipe dream itself, R.Evolución Latina now delivers on the dreams of others daily.

RL has helped me in every aspect of my life, as an actor, as person, as a family member. Everything I learned in the Shakespeare workshop & choir I can apply in my life. It has given me the tools & confidence to pursue my acting. It has made me participate in our community. I can’t explain how it works but it works & I am proud to be a part of this amazing organization.Tony Castellanos, (BWS Student – Shakespeare & Choir)
You are not only inspiring these kids but are also empowering the parents to really go beyond in helping the children reach their goals.”Carmen C Pacheco, (mom)
