Affinity groups, or action groups are a great way to use the networks in your life to start taking action on the climate and ecological crisis. This could be a faith-based group, a knitting group, people you know in your neighborhood, or a group of friends. As long as you follow Extinction Rebellion’s Principles and values, you can take action in the name of XR.
An action group start-up guide is available here - feel free to get in touch to get support on starting your group (firstname.lastname@example.org) More Here
