Financial Goal

Help Extinction Rebellion tackle COVID-19 and environmental emergency

We now face the dual existential threats of COVID-19 and the climate and ecological crisis. Help the 1100+ Extinction Rebellion groups around the world respond to both at once. This money will be transferred by XR Belgium to XR Global Support who will help XR groups around the world in the form of seed grants as they confront the challenges posed by COVID-19 and regroup to better demand climate and ecological justice. https://rebellion.global

 COVID-19 threatens our ways of life 
Since October 2018, Extinction Rebellion has grown to over 1100 groups in over 60 countries. Through XR’s bold and creative activism, we have sent a clear message to governments around the world: they must tell the truth about the climate and ecological crisis and take urgent climate action.

Now, COVID-19 brings immense challenges, posing urgent health, safety, and livelihood concerns. As a movement rooted in love, XR groups are meeting these challenges with compassion, creativity, and mutual aid.

Meanwhile, the ongoing climate and ecological emergency has not stopped—far from it. Governments are looking at plans to bail out climate-destroying industries and the banks that fund them. Systems around the globe are rebuilding and realigning. In these times of change, it is more crucial than ever that XR can flourish and demand a more just, livable world.

Help XR groups around the world provide immediate, life-saving COVID-19 relief as they regroup to continue demanding climate and ecological justice.

We now face the dual existential threats of COVID-19 and the climate and ecological crisis.  We need your help addressing both at once.

XR groups are meeting immediate needs through critical and urgent relief work. For example, some groups in countries like The Gambia and Kenya have launched hand sanitizer and mask distribution programs. Other groups in countries like the Philippines are setting up mutual aid funds. While saving lives and providing immediate economic relief, groups have been able to demonstrate XR’s powerful Principles and Values; conduct outreach and grow memberships; and raise awareness around the climate and ecological emergency.

XR is also introducing creative new ways of demanding climate and ecological action. Groups around the world—from Australia to Germany, Austria to Sri Lanka—are taking to the interwebs in digital disruption and rebellion. Meanwhile, capacity-building work continues: for example, especially where activists have lost their livelihoods, they may now begin to receive upskilling and funding support in order to start providing trainings, building partnerships, and more.

Where will the money go?
This money will be transferred by XR Belgium to XR Global Support who will help XR groups around the world in the form of seed grants as they confront the challenges posed by COVID-19 and regroup to better demand climate and ecological justice. XR’s Global Support will oversee grant program administration, and funds will also go toward enabling continued grant operations on XR Global Support’s end.

This is a time to remember what XR is rebelling for: a healthier, more resilient world that can weather crises, foster cooperation, and address the existential threats facing our world.

Help us address the unprecedented crises of COVID-19 and impending climate and ecological collapse at once. 
If you can, please consider giving to sustain the movement during this critical juncture. Thank you.
