For a non-violent movement to win we need to reach out to everyone! Building large, diverse communities will help our autonomy and creativity to flourish. This means connecting with different communities and talking to ordinary people about the emergency and how we can do something about it. Helping them organise and take action.
In the Communities working group we help make all that happen in Extinction Rebellion.
The cycle of rebellion can be equal parts exciting and intimidating.

A platform to showcase the incredible work of local rebels from across the nations and regions. A good idea hatched in Cornwall can be reworked in Teesside and improved again in Dundee… Actions, outreach, community building, talks, trainings, the list goes on! Do you know of something ingenious that moved us closer to achieving our Three Demands?
Let the movement know by contributing to our community resources.Go to Rebel Toolkit
We set up Rebellion Academy UK to help rebels orientate themselves into and through XR. We offer interactive online trainings and resources to help you to learn more about XR and find your ideal role in the movement.Go To Rebellion Academy

XR Community Groups
XR Community Groups are a way for XR members to connect and work together through communities of shared self-identity (for example, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, profession, faith) rather than of shared location. Is your community already engaged with XR and the climate and ecological crisis?Find out more about XR Community Groups
The Extinction Rebellion Rebel Ringers are the Phone Bank wing of XR. We have the mandate to contact, inform and engage as many people about XR as we can over the phone. Rebel Ringing is a regenerative, grass roots, inclusive and effective way to grow the Movement – it is open to everyone and perfect for those with only an hour or two a week to give.Come and join the XR-UK Rebel Ringers
Growing the Movement!
To win, we need numbers. Big numbers. The idea that we need a Mass Mobilisation of support for Extinction Rebellion’s 3 demands has always been central to our strategy. Want to help grow our numbers and build a community of rebels?Find out more about Mass Mobilisation
