Movement of Movements

Extinction Rebellion describes itself as a movement of movements. No one movement can do it all. XR stands with other diverse groups and movements committed to social and climate justice in the knowledge that we must unite to survive.

XR is a separate movement to all the groups and campaigns listed below, which may not share XR’s values and commitment to nonviolence. However, we may sometimes support, promote or co-host talks and events with some of these movements, where the aim of the event aligns with the aims of XR.
