JOIN THE REBELLION
XR is a global movement with branches all over the world. Sign up to our mailing list on the AUSTRLIAN website to get regular updates on XR events and actions in your local area.
Then you will also be automatically signed up to receive news from XR Manningham if you supply a Manningham postcode on signup. OR email us directly on firstname.lastname@example.org for a phone chat to start with if preferred.
WE need you!
We are a new group and looking for as many locals to join us as possible.
We value community connection, solidarity as well as individual relationships. We want to get to know you. And no matter how little time you have available (or how much!) we hope you can find a role within the rebellion that feels right for you and will work with your current commitments and lifestyle.
Our purpose is rooted in an intuition that something at the furthest reaches of our imaginings needs to be ushered in if our species is to survive
We don't know exactly what that is, but we come together in humility and in courage, that we can form relationships that will make a difference in our world.
Jobs we need help with - and how we organise
Local Groups, which are based on geographic location, of which XR Manningham is one, is one of the main three ways of organising within XR.
Within each local group - we need lots of people to do lots of jobs!
An example of some of the roles needed inside a thriving local group are
So to get more specific, these roles might look like:
Media and Social Media Person
Get an idea of what this role involves from the XR VIC Media Traning below. We currently have a Facebook Page, but no Instagram or Twitter. This role would require between 1 to 4 hours a week, or as little time as you may have! If you think you would be able to take on this crucial outreach role, please get in touch on email@example.com
Giving Public Talks
Do you have public speaking skills - a teacher or academic comfortable addressing a small group? This role is to deliver the 'DNA' talk of Extinction Rebellion, called the 'Heading for Extinction' talk, as per the below recording. If you think you would be able to take on this crucial outreach role, please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
