GLIDE Advocacy: people power

an Initiative of GLIDE's Center for Social Justice




What's going on

People are standing up, speaking out, getting together and fighting back against a social (dis)order motivated by greed and division, and all the extreme inequality and brutality such a disorder entails. People are fighting for something far different, and wholly within reach of our imaginations as well as our collective efforts and resources: a more equitable, just and peaceful world in which no one is forced to live in want and fear.
