JOIN THE REVOLUTION

#BreakBarriers #BuildSolidarity

Are you a grassroots activist or a donor or ally organization committed to supporting grassroots activism? Join the Grassroots Solidarity Revolution by adopting the five actions that we are proposing as part of this campaign. Maybe you are already making some efforts that support this change! We also invite you to check out these opportunities to start engaging with the movement:

MAKE THE REVOLUTION VIRAL

Help us grow the movement on social media. Follow #GrassrootsSolidarityRevolution , #BreakBarriers and # BuildSolidarity ; like and share our campaign posts, and tag donors, allies and activists who should join the change. Make this conversation yours by sharing your experiences, reflections and visions around what is needed to promote a true solidarity revolution.

FOLLOW OUR JOURNEY AND GET IN TOUCH 

Stay tuned as we share our journey and learning, testing solidarity spaces for activists, donors and allies. For example, we will share how grassroots activists in several countries are hosting special spaces for activists (Jam Sessions) and our experience on a global dialogue connecting grassroots groups with international donors and allies. We hope both pilots result in tools that inspire and help others! If you want more information, advice or would like to explore the possibility of joining our dialogues (whether you are an activist, donor or ally organization) contact us at grassrootscampaign@civicus.org 

SURVEY FOR ACTIVISTS: SHARE YOUR VOICE 

We are running a global survey about the resourcing realities, needs and visions of grassroots activists to share this information with international donors and allies during a series of dialogues starting in October 2021. Help us place diverse grassroots voices at the core of these conversations!

Please, complete the survey HERE   | Deadline: 30 November 2021

SEND US STORIES AND EXAMPLES OF YOUR REVOLUTIONARY ACTIONS 

Collective inspiration and learning are key to driving this revolution. We want to share stories of activists, donors and allies who are taking steps to break barriers and build solidarity between them. Send us yours and it could be featured on our blog and map of global actions! Email us at grassrootscampaign@civicus.org

GLOBAL MAP OF ACTIONS

People around the world are already engaging in the Grassroots Solidarity Revolution! Several groups of grassroots activists are hosting one or more local dialogues and Jam Sessions in all the countries listed on this map.

What are these events about?

  • The Jam Sessions are vibrant virtual meetings hosted as part of this campaign, which are designed by and for activists to build relationships, promote collective healing and co-create grassroots-led visions around resourcing and organizing.
  • The local solidarity dialogues are spaces where grassroots activists, donors and allies cultivate meaningful relationships and build trust and mutual understanding. For now, these dialogues are hosted by the five members of Grassroots Changemakers team who helped co-design this campaign.
