Understanding Activism with stories from the frontlines

Activism is under attack, and Rhize’s groundbreaking report, Understanding Activism, has the data proving that civil society is part of the problem but can also be a part of the solution. In interviewing over 1100 activists from ten countries, the research reveals what activists really need to be more effective as well as how external actors can play a role in doing more good than harm.

On Wednesday, December 13th, Rhize will be joined by an incredible panel of activists for our global release of Understanding Activism where we will start the conversation about how civil society can put this data into action and provide better movement support.
