We are emerging from 2017 with a bigger community than ever before. There are so many stories to tell, but here are some of our favorite highlights...
This morning, a Ugandan police unit known as the "Flying Squad" raided activists offices in Kampala and brutally arrested 16 youth human rights defenders, known for their nonviolent actions.
With the release of Understanding Activism, we have the incredible opportunity to hear about the realities of activists on the frontlines. Join Rhize on December 13th to learn more about the research and hear stories from Venezuela and Russia about how activists are working for more open, democratic societies.
Join Rhize on December 5th to find out! We'll be joined by a panel of activists who have worked on the frontlines and better understand how we can all better support their work.
Joyous barely begins to explain the feeling we share with our friends in the struggle for a peaceful and democratic Zimbabwe!!!
For 37 years, Robert “Uncle Bob” Mugabe ruled Zimbabwe with an iron fist, giving legitimacy to his authoritarian friends in Angola, Uganda, Rwanda, Swaziland, Sudan… to name just a few.
But a new day for Zimbabwe and potentially for others living under similar rulers on the African continent has come. Today, Zimbabwe! Tomorrow… there is new hope for all!
We're here in South Africa for the first ever GLOBAL coaches retreat—with incredible coaches from 14 countries including Azerbaijan, Ukraine, South Africa, Sudan, Uganda and Kenya!
Rhize delivered our workshop "Adopting a Movement Mindset" to civil society leaders at CampaignCon who were grappling with how they can provide better movement support.
For the second year in a row, Rhize is heading to CampaignCon as a co-convener. We're excited to join this vibrant, global community of activists, digital campaigners and more to share ideas, co-create and find best practices through true participatory exploration of campaigning theory and practice. Will we see you in South Africa this November?
Rhize celebrates the launch of our regional Movement-Building Hub with a convening of incredible coaches and staff in Nairobi! We're gearing up for a year of incredible learning and solidarity across our Africa Hub.
With the support of 6 incredible U.S. coaches, Rhize is launching Resistance 101 trainings across the country. This free training helps people who are leading the fight for a reimagined U.S. democracy build effective action-based communities. Our goal is for all people to participate in this emerging movement in creative and dynamic ways. Organizing is hard to sustain. With the support of Rhize coaches, grassroots leaders like you will get the skills to turn your vision of a better tomorrow into a reality.
Our democracy isn't going to rebuild itself. Sign up for a training and learn how you can bring power back to the people.
Thanks to a generous Rhize supporter, we've received a matching grant. Every dollar up to $25,000 will be matched. And if $50,000 isn't a good way to start off the new year, we don't know what is.
In all seriousness, this opportunity is game-changing. We at Rhize have big plans for 2017, and with this donation we can make our plans a reality. In 2017 we'll be supporting more movements than ever before because, if we learned anything in 2016, it is that movement-building can change the world.
We are so glad to see supporters who value social movements as much as we do. By the looks of the current political situation around the world, we need social movements now more than ever. Consider helping us reach our goal by donating today. Bringing power back to people in the new year is going to take all of us.
Many of you have asked us - What now? This is an invitation to stand with the movements that are the strongest resistance to the targeted violence and repression threatening the livelihoods of so many across the US. As of today, our Facebook page will serve as a repository for meaningful actions that people can take to fight for inclusive, people-powered democracy.
This grassroots organization was launched in 2013, by Sungu, Antony, and Victoria to campaign against a bill that would levy heavy taxation on basic commodities. They have since spread their scope to support communities living in low income areas and informal settlements in Nairobi to address how taxation policies directly and indirectly affect the lives of these residents.
2015 has been an exciting, jam-packed year for Rhize. We're so happy to share with you all the exciting details.
