TRUST THE PEOPLE
... is a movement of community builders committed to building a real democracy from the grassroots up. We believe that by stepping into our agency and working with others in our neighbourhoods, we can shape our society into one that serves the needs of all.
The Mutual Aid movements of the Covid-19 pandemic have shown us that people everywhere want to work together to help others. We want to help harness this energy for collaboration and community and turn it towards solving our most pressing challenges.
WHY TRUST THE PEOPLE?
WHAT WE DO
At the core of everything we do is a commitment to collaboration and democracy. We want to share the skills needed to turn our communities into democratic hubs, in which everyone’s voice is heard.
We run several offerings to this end:
The wonderful Greg (and his Freedom Van) have embarked on a two-and-a-half month long tour around England (with one stop in Wales) to connect with TTP graduates and hold discussions with young people about our movement and what it could offer them. Through a combination of big public spectacles (park and town square rallies/fairs) and one-to-one encounters (door-knocking, stalling, phone banking), they’ll be mobilising for XR’s next rebellion, Insulate Britain and local community projects, as well as holding assemblies and learning about what people are going through in the UK at this time.
If you see a beautiful blue van pull up in your town, stroll over and say hello!
