We are headed for Extinction. Our governments are not only failing to act now, they are also preventing meaningful change. This is why we rebel. We act now so our society changes course - so we are headed for a better world and a brighter future. We act now because people are dying, further tragedy is coming - we fight and brace ourselves for the impacts of the environmental destruction that are already locked on. There is everything to lose. There is everything to protect.
Welcome to XR North Carolina
XR North Carolina is part of Extinction Rebellion (rebellion.earth), an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction and minimize the risk of social collapse. It began in the UK in 2018 and spread to the United States (XR US). Chapters in North Carolina began forming in July 2019: Chapelboro, Charlotte, Durham, Warren County, Winston-Salem (local groups).
Sign up here (get involved)to find out about upcoming events and actions. If you get in touch, a real person will get back to you shortly. There are local chapters across the state, and if one isn't in your area, we can help you start one in your area.
Together, we are building the broad movement this moment demands. Your ideas, your grief, your wisdom and your love are welcome.
