Welcome to the resistance! Your participation, and leadership, as a founding member of a “Rising Team” is the first step towards organizing the resistance and preserving an America founded on hope. To have maximum impact, we will expand quickly to harness the unprecedented level of activism across the state.

The goal of This Land Rising, and our strategy for success in the short and long term, is to mobilize as many people as possible to get engaged in their community. We do this by empowering leaders to form teams that can share the work of community building by providing resources and a framework to have their voices heard.

We can vouch, from personal experience, that small, in-person monthly meetings, with neighbors maximize participation, effectiveness, and also build community. We’ve put this toolkit together to help you understand the essential role you play in making change. This Toolkit is meant to provide you with resources to support your work; use them or don’t – we support what works for your group!
