The root word of insurgent is insurgere which means "to rise." An insurgent rises against inequities, critically questions, and engages in the world around them to assist their community. Insurgent Theatre is a feminist, anti-racist, LGBTQIA+ social justice organization that can be hired to put on workshops for schools, non-profit organizations, professional development, and in a multitude of other ways. Insurgent Theatre provides unique theatre workshops as well as guest teaching. “..and it’s a fun way, because it really involves people and I would love to see workshops like this in you know grade schools, junior high schools, high schools, senior centers, YMCA’s" (Workshop Participant, 2014).
