About Us

 

Guerrilla Community Movement is a community of leaders of all walks of life creating new “recipes” of services and programs to empower both our local communities as well as individuals in need. We believe that our problems exist due to an imbalance in our social values and connections and need to focus on a stacking approach to our problems in joint community efforts to empower networks of individuals to resolve them together. There are so many resources available today in individual, corporate and nonprofit efforts that just need to be stacked in ways that are more effective and our focus is on creating new programs that combine these resources. We call this “Manifesting Collectively” with the process of “turning Chaos into meaning” and we’re looking for individuals and organizations alike who share in these values.

Guerrilla Mask Movement

Our founding story

Where It All Began

We started as GMM; Guerrilla Mask Movement laser focused on quality control, sourcing and delivery of quality medical grade masks to frontline workers in need during the initial phases of the Covid pandemic when the mask supply chain in the US was faced with one of the worst supply chain disruptions its every faced in history. Quickly we were joined by people in all walks of life to share important information impacting social and commercial concerns alike, months before they hit mainstream news, creating a brain trust of leaders with a passion to get ahead of our community problems. Today we are a 501(c)(3) non profit organization with the name Guerrilla Community Movement taking our initial grassroots, entrepreneurial approach to serving local community needs focused on regenerative concepts to bring back communities.

In 2012, Raúl met his wife and together they have 4 sons, 2 of whom were foster-adopted. Foster parenting solidified Raúl’s understanding of the power of "being in service". Both he and his wife are committed advocates for foster parenting and continue to support the foster care community. As a family they are always seeking ways to serve and grow their community while learning through experience.

Raúl’s other passion is real estate investing and he currently owns rental properties in New Jersey, Mississippi, California and New Mexico.

She has a BA in Humanities from the University of Louisville and an MS in Journalism from Columbia University as well as Kundalini Level 1 & 2 certifications, 200-hour RYT certification, and Accessible Yoga training. Her two professions intersected in 2018 after she learned of her kundalini yoga community's involvement in human detention at the US southern border through corporate contracts with ICE. She created a petition and website to bring attention to the issue and then worked with a group of activists to demand change. But when the chronic abuse, corruption, and hypocrisy at the root of kundalini yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan was exposed in 2020, Mary knew it was officially time to move on. She is pursuing a new approach to her teaching and practice, one that better reflects her values of integrity, transparency, and authenticity.

Our Model

  • Identified and interested people in underserved communities will be eligible for the Micro Farm Gardens training program on a scholarship basis
  • GCM will sponsor installation and training for each site
  • A portion of the produce grown will be gifted to the community
  • A portion of the produce grown will be sold to local restaurants to pay wages to program participants

Where Do We Start?

Pacoima is known as “the projects” of the San Fernando Valley with scarce fresh produce.

Air pollution is rampant and needs natural ecorestoration to clean the air.

An urban garden in partnership with Mar Diego of Dough Girl Pizza is a great start.

St Joseph’s Center has opened 4 new permanent supportive housing projects. Each project has a green space earmarked for a community garden.

In collaboration with GCM Community member Karen Van Nuys, we want to create a garden for

their Pointe on Vermont project.

What is it?

  • Pacoima Creator Kitchen Garden and training facility
  • St. Joseph Creator Kitchen Garden
  • Training for former foster youth, Joanna Cruz, to be our Farm Manager and Lead Trainer
  • Programming on Farm Installation, Farm Growing, Nutrition, and Cooking
  • Hiring and Training local urban farmers to manage projects around Los Angeles
  • Documentary film production

The Vision

  • To turn 2,000 sq ft of common space at the San Fernando Gardens in Pacoima into Urban, Community Micro Farms
  • Local businesses can sponsor micro farm sections to grow produce to make salads, salsas, hot sauce, pizza sauce and other items they have on the menu
  • As the community interest grows we can expand the gardens throughout the projects

"A growing body of research points to the beneficial effects that exposure to the natural world has on health, reducing stress and promoting healing. Now, policymakers, employers, and healthcare providers are increasingly considering the human need for nature in how they plan and operate."

– Yale School of the Environment

Disrupting Barriers For People In Need

GUERRILLA COMMUNITY MOVEMENT

We are transforming from Guerrilla Mask Movement to Guerrilla Community Movement! Please bear with us as we rebrand! We have a number of worthy causes we are working on. Please come back soon to see new updates.

 

Guerrilla Mask Movement is a grass-roots campaign that started by putting hospital-grade masks directly in the hands of Covid-19 front line healthcare workers NOW, bypassing administration, middlemen and red tape. We are continuing to expand beyond masks to address the most current needs.

OUR LATEST PROJECTS:

Creator Kitchens, Micro Farms & Garden Training

Regen-Urban-Microfarms

A kitchen is a place where ingredients are blended together to make something nourishing. Through the “Creator Kitchen” concept, we can create conditions for growth and thriving in both food and people.

Our current projects offer young people opportunities and access to education and services they wouldn’t normally have: qualified mentorship, high-quality food sources, wellness and nutrition information, community support, and job pathways in settings that allow them to evolve at their own way and pace, inspired by their authentic interests.

Regenerative Urban Microfarms to Support At-Risk and Foster Youth

Regen-Urban-Microfarms

Eating is one of the most important things we do each day for our physical health and mental well being. Let’s make a difference by providing at-risk and foster youth in Los Angeles with access to nutrient-dense, locally grown food while reducing carbon emissions and regenerating the planet.

We are raising money for a pilot project to locally grow regeneratively farmed, super yields of nutrient-rich, organic vegetables in a cost- and space-effective way in the densely populated greater Los Angeles area, a location that does not naturally spring to mind as an optimal environment for farming. We want to change that idea and establish a model for other cities.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

The Mission of Guerrilla Mask Movement (GMM) is to bridge corporate resources with people and causes in need. We are committed to doing all in our power to bypass red tape and expedite the process of providing help when it is most needed. Beyond following an often formulaic process, considering goals and boundaries, as entrepreneurs we think outside the box, finding ways around common obstacles to achieving the goal(s).

OUR STORY

Within 3 days of posting a personal GoFundMe campaign, Henry Park was joined by 21 other tech executives, volunteers and community leaders to make this mission a guerrilla movement that follows a Kaizen approach to daily iterations for operational efficiency to meet the demands of our healthcare workers in this rare and challenging supply and demand arbitrage laden global market for medical grade masks.

Disrupting Barriers For People In Need

GUERRILLA COMMUNITY MOVEMENT

is a community of leaders of all walks of life creating new “recipes” of services and programs to empower both our local communities as well as individuals in need.

 

We believe that our problems exist due to an imbalance in our social values and connections and need to focus on a stacking approach to our problems in joint community efforts to empower networks of individuals to resolve them together.

Regen-Urban-Microfarms

A kitchen is a place where ingredients are blended together to make something nourishing. Through the “Creator Kitchen” concept, we can create conditions for growth and thriving in both food and people.

Our current projects offer young people opportunities and access to education and services they wouldn’t normally have: qualified mentorship, high-quality food sources, wellness and nutrition information, community support, and job pathways in settings that allow them to evolve at their own way and pace, inspired by their authentic interests.

For Land and People: The Grange

Regen-Urban-Microfarms

Eating is one of the most important things we do each day for our physical health and mental well being. Let’s make a difference by providing at-risk and foster youth in Los Angeles with access to nutrient-dense, locally grown food while reducing carbon emissions and regenerating the planet.

We are raising money for a pilot project to locally grow regeneratively farmed, super yields of nutrient-rich, organic vegetables in a cost- and space-effective way in the densely populated greater Los Angeles area, a location that does not naturally spring to mind as an optimal environment for farming. We want to change that idea and establish a model for other cities.

What Drives Us

Our Values

Be a hero
Empowerment through education and mentorship
Take action/ Be a leader
Dialectic/ Respect all principles and beliefs
Break through bureaucracy and red tape
Interconnectedness of non profit, commerce and community
Practical , Effectual and Resourceful
Wellness of community and individuals

Our founding story

We started as GMM; Guerrilla Mask Movement laser focused on quality control, sourcing and delivery of quality medical grade masks to frontline workers in need during the initial phases of the Covid pandemic when the mask supply chain in the US was faced with one of the worst supply chain disruptions its every faced in history. Quickly we were joined by people in all walks of life to share important information impacting social and commercial concerns alike, months before they hit mainstream news, creating a brain trust of leaders with a passion to get ahead of our community problems. Today we are a 501(c)(3) non profit organization with the name Guerrilla Community Movement taking our initial grassroots, entrepreneurial approach to serving local community needs focused on regenerative concepts to bring back communities.

Introduction

Since the beginning of 2021, GCM has been working closely with Mar Diego of Dough Girl Pizza, Henry, and Jennifer mentoring some of her kids. Working closely with Mar over the past 8 months has opened our eyes to the common needs these kids/young adults have. And to support Mar’s efforts and assist with her financial needs with the kids, we will be incorporating a Needs Board to our website so that GCM Community members can donate items and help look out for donation items that are needed. Here is Mar’s list of what are needed:

Growing into success

Corporate programs to create gig – economy style work for the underserved at-risk youth in our community with mentoring, training, and management services provided by Guerrilla Community Movement.

The goal is for youth to make $500 to get help them get back on their feet.  That will make a big impact and will help them get away from homelessness.
