Where are we now?
We are facing an unprecedented ecological crisis. Governments all over the world are failing to act, but we, the people, are rising.
In less than a year, Extinction Rebellion has grown to over 70 countries with more than 650 groups at local, regional and national level. Ordinary people are coming together to enforce change, in what may be our last chance to sustain life as we know it.
So much has changed in that time. We've pushed the narrative on the climate and ecological crisis, tens of thousands have joined on the streets pushing government to take bold action, and even more Rebels are working behind the scenes day to day to grow the movement and buid the needed support systems.
Help us become even stronger
We have an opportunity to change the course of history, and this is only possible with the contribution of time, energy and money. This international crowdfunder, managed by the International Support Team (IST), will provide continued support to the increasing number of groups all over the world. While the UK Crowdfunder funds XR groups in the UK, this international crowdfunder is for transparent distribution among the 650 (and growing!) XR national branches, regional and local groups in dozens of countries across the globe.
The XR IST communicates with and supports the global network of local groups with resources, training, media communications and funding. It takes a lot to build something of this magnitude, and we can't do it without you.
Please consider a gift of regular giving so we can plan ahead for the coming year.
Where will the money go?
This money will be transparently dedicated to delivering more trainings, facilitating conflict resilience and regenerative cultures, and expanding and strengthening communications and tech infrastructure. Seed funding will be provided to national groups to become self sustaining, and funds will be given to support the work of the International Support Team in these efforts.
Since April, we have seen hundreds of Extinction Rebellion groups come together and demand change in the face of this growing existential crisis. As the next chapter of Extinction Rebellion begins, every donation is vital and very much appreciated by rebels.
Help us rise up for our children, our children's children, and future generations of all life. This may be our last chance.
