DISTURB THE ESTABLISHMENT
With AVERY McQUIRTER
Avery McQuirter is a 20-year-old student from Ottawa, Canada, and the founder of Disturb the Establishment. Her studies focus on global inequalities and social change, with special interests in Indigenous resistance and racial equity. She is also the social media manager for Gaia Protection! Through both Disturb the Establishment and Gaia Protection, Avery has created a community in which people can learn about social justice and human rights and engage in discussions with each other. Avery is currently working towards launching her career in activism and advocacy and is focused on growing Disturb the Establishment to help get people started in their activism journey.
ABOUT THE Organisation
Disturb the Establishment is a platform made by students for students. It focuses on educating young people about human rights and social justice, whether through theoretical concepts, prominent figures in the field, or past and current events. They strive to create an environment in which students can meaningfully engage with the presented topics and think critically about the systems we live in. They mainly focus on education through social media. Examples of their content include articles titled “Climate Wars: What Are They?”, “The First Pride Was A Riot”, “What is Mutual Aid?”, “What’s Happening in Palestine?”, and more lighthearted content such as “Wall-E and Sociological Storytelling.” As of May 2021, we have reached almost 1,400 students in Canada and have added three more people to our team. We are extremely excited to be launching our first events in June, registration for which is open now!

ABOUT THE PROJECT
Disturb The Establishment
Young people want to be politically and socially involved but are often dismissed because of their age. Disturb The Establishment believes in young people. In fact, we believe young people today are the most politically engaged generation and are going to change the world! DTE provides young people with accessible social justice education to start them on their journey to becoming changemakers!
