Louis is part of an emerging organization called All Revolutionary Ques. It’s geared toward working to improve the global condition of Black and oppressed people by not only challenging the established power structure but also challenging our own organizations that capitulate to the established power structure. He feels that our own organizations can be utilized more efficiently to uplift the oppressed if they make a conscious effort to utilize their resources to fund and support systematic programs for self-determination rather than waste it on greed, corruption and status quo. All Revolutionary Ques will continue to encourage Omega Psi Phi do just that. All Revolutionary Ques is a committed and loving Revolutionary element of the class struggle within Omega. It seeks to bridge the gaps within the class struggle to make Omega whole and fully committed to utilizing its talents and resources as a movement to uplift downtrodden humanity through transformation of oppressive and inequitable systems
