Civic engagement necessarily encompasses a spectrum of activities. It may take the form of direct community service that is informed by the root causes of social inequity. It may include activism, dissent, and protest; political action and campaigns; community organizing; non-profit work; issue advocacy; or public service at all levels of government.
From April 16-18, we will engage in three days of protest, education, music and cultural exchange. As powerful interests try to wedge Americans apart, Friends of the Earth is excited to join this unprecedented coming together of historically separate communities to demand a democracy in which everyone's voice is heard and money doesn't buy policy.
