There is a lot we can do from home. Here are a few ideas.
Organize an Online Democracy School
CELDF now offers a virtual version of its Democracy School. The four modules educate the public about rights-based organizing, inform participants about how the system under which we currently live undermines traditional activism, and introduce strategies for how empowering local decision-making can create the communities we envision. Recent schools have been held in Maine, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Ohio, Virginia and Florida. These schools are designed to educate and build a local community group willing to challenge the current system and work together to come up with rights-based solutions. If you are interested in organizing one for your community, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Host an Online Screenings of ‘Invisible Hand’
Critics call the new documentary INVISIBLE HAND a “paradigm shifting” story. A Public Herald Studios production, it is narrated by executive producer, actor, and advocate Mark Ruffalo. “People are adapting to these perils in daring and creative ways—and winning,” says Ruffalo. “INVISIBLE HAND shows how to fight the forces that put profit above all else while addressing the root cause of our flawed system.” The film explores the global Rights of Nature and community rights movements, including CELDF’s work in Grant Township, PA and Toledo, OH. CELDF’s Markie Miller, Tish O’Dell, Chad Nicholson and Ben Price are featured. We can help you organize a screening and Q&A for your community. Contact email@example.com.
Help Distribute the People’s News
Grassroots movements need help getting the word out. We can’t rely on platforms like Facebook. Their algorithms get in the way. And as these platforms continue to obstruct social and environmental activists and organizations we are reminded of the need to strengthen our own independent means of communication. Help distribute our paper newsletter in your community. Send an email with the subject “Newsletters” to firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
