DRUUMM and ARE leadership maintained a close relationship with ongoing reporting, face-to-face meetings, and DRUUMM participation in the ARE nominating process until 2016.
In October of 2016, ARE leadership committed to a cultural shift and organizational restructure in order to more effectively disrupt white supremacy within. ARE's current organizational model was adopted by consensus on July 11, 2017 (pub. 7/23/17). "The Transition" (moving completely from the former to the current model) is expected to take about 3 months, and be complete by the end of October, 2017. A review of the Accountability Guidelines, and creation of new Covenants will be priorities for the ARE Leadership Collective during this time.
