Give To Grow: It Takes Roots 10k for May Day Fundraiser
April 11, 2017
BENEFITING: GRASSROOTS GLOBAL JUSTICE
This administration is intent on destroying our bodies, our homes, our communities and Planet Earth. Will you join us to stop them, and help build the world we want to live in? Give to grow the capacity of our powerful resistance and help us raise 10k by May Day!
From the People’s Climate March to May Day and beyond, we are defending land, water, our bodies, and our homes.
We are people on the frontlines of racial injustice, of Indigenous treaty violations, of the climate crisis and the housing crisis. We know what action needs to be taken. We need our governments and global leaders to catch up with people on the ground. We are committed to expanding our grassroots power and building sanctuary for all.
We are coming together from across struggles and regions, the world over, to organize and build together. Give today to help grow the grassroots power we are cultivating across our communities! With your effort we will reach 10k by May Day so we can continue to grow for the long haul. We give to grow.
#ItTakesRoots to #GrowtheResistance is a multi-racial effort led by women and gender oppressed people of color and Indigenous peoples across the US--in over 150 grassroots organizations across the country. From April 4 to May Day, we are going #BeyondtheMoment to build a mighty movement that embraces our differences and overcomes what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. described as the "giant triplets" of Racism, Extreme Materialism and Militarism.
These Giants have not been vanquished. They are rising strong under a Trump administration. His Billionaire’s cabinet is fueling racist, misogynist, xenophobic politics and practices at our expense. Through the power of our communities and people we will defy the overt profiteering of fossil fuels, real estate, expanding militarism, and the extractive economy.
We believe the power of people and community is mightier than the three giants. We will resist together, grow together, and build in the name of love and unity.
Which is why Climate Justice Alliance (CJA), Grassroots Global Justice Alliance (GGJ), Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN), and Right to the City Alliance (RTC) alongside Center for Story-based Strategy and The Ruckus Society have been organizing together for years and leading #ItTakesRoots.
This is a moment for broad movement alignment. That’s why we have also teamed up with Movement for Black Lives to launch Beyond the Moment, and with the People’s Climate Movement for the March for Climate, Jobs, Justice.
Because we know we can overcome these Giants with love, unity, and purpose.
Give to Grow today!
