Upcoming Events

Due to COVID-19, RAWtools events are on hold until national and local health authorities approve group gatherings. We encourage you to follow your local department of public health guidelines to help flatten the curve and stay healthy. You may still request an event for 2021, but expect an extended time to schedule your event as we reschedule already cancelled events. If you have any questions, contact us at

Our Vision

Our vision is to repurpose weapons into hand tools to be used in the creation of something new, preventing the weapon’s use for violence and creating a cycle of peace.

RAWtools, Inc. partners with communities in an effort to repurpose weapons for productive lifelong purpose. The materials from the weapon will be forged into media suitable for fabrication into new tools. Each weapon will be connected to its new purpose, creating a narrative that will travel with the new tool. This narrative will take on a tangible form in the packaging of the tool, traveling to its new destination and purpose.

An online interactive story will be formed for each tool where the new owner of the tool will be able to “show and tell” how the tool is being used, thus, preventing a cycle of violence and creating a cycle of peace. With this imagery we will look to provide resources and opportunities to “learn of war no more, ” as Micah and Isaiah, and you and I, have hoped for.
