Join a Local Action Group: Local Action Groups are at the heart of our People Powered Movement and are integral in leading grassroots human rights campaigning in their communities. Some of the things our awesome Local Action Groups around the country get up to include letter writing in solidarity with persecuted human rights defenders, hosting events in their community like movie screenings or panel discussions, engaging with local media, gathering petition signatures at their weekend market, meeting with their local MPs and organising and taking part in vigils and protests. Joining an Action Group or Network is an excellent way to meet and connect with other like-minded activists in your community and take action together. You can use this handy tool to find and connect with your closest local action group.
