“Leadership is enabling others to achieve shared purpose in the face of uncertainty.”
We are movements, organizations, leaders, organizers, researchers, educators, practitioners and institutions from 75 different countries who consolidate, grow and sustain our power. Adopting and adapting part or all of the community organizing practices across the globe. Together turning our stories into sources of power, dreaming of a more just world and working internationally and strategically towards it with a solid relationship fabric.
We stand for freedom and justice as our guiding values, and work towards building agency, courage, and solidarity for a more just, democratic and sustainable world.
Our core purpose towards that is enabling people power by developing leaders who can organize their communities for change in ways that center people’s stories and aspirations.
Our work stems from a deep belief in interconnectedness that strives and organizes for freedom and justice collaboratively and collectively, until everyone is free.
We act with utmost thoughtfulness, empathy and courage at all times, ensuring we make courageous choices and committing to meaningful, quality and nuance in all our work.
We constantly and actively learn on this journey by constantly evaluating our work, learning from our failures, and learning from and with each other.
We do all of this with a spirit of joy, generosity and hope, celebrating each others’ success, encouraging growth and leadership even when going gets tough, and facilitating global solidarity and support with a spirit of unabashed and active hopefulness.
