Act locally - Together we are stronger

To fight global injustices, we must campaign at a grassroots level and engage with our communities and build connections around the UK.

 

We know that we have the power to reshape the global landscape - to ensure that people across the world can live in justice and peace. Votes for women, ending apartheid in South Africa, the minimum wage, and many other significant moments were brought about by ordinary people speaking truth to power. We know we can fight and win against greed and oppression. History proves it.

War on Want is always looking to work with keen individuals and groups from around the UK. There are various ways you could campaign on the ground while empowering yourself and those around you. We are bigger than the sum of our parts. Let’s build this movement!          

Anyone can take action on global justice in their local area. No matter how little experience or knowledge you have, you can join the global movement for change. All you need is enthusiasm for justice. Get in touch! TakeAction@waronwant.org

You can make a difference. Through your student union, society, trade union branch or just by yourself, you can take action and support others everywhere who are struggling for their rights.

Don’t stand for exploitation and injustice, for war and conflict. Stand for people, for equality, for human rights. Stand with us.
