be more than a witness

About Positive Force

Positive Force DC is an activist collective that came from the 1980s DC punk and hardcore scene. We seek radical social change, personal growth, and youth empowerment.

We organize benefit shows, free concerts, art shows, film screenings, protests, and educational events while also doing direct work with people in need. We believe in building supportive, transformational community, where friendship, fun and mutual aid mix freely. We are not about dogma, but a spirit of flexible, creative rebellion that has room for many specific beliefs.
