It Takes Roots is continuing to #GrowTheResistance
Today, we are launching our 10k by May Day Fundraising Campaign: #GiveToGrow!
As you know, we are working with our It Takes Roots partners and The Majority to take Trans-Local action on May Day. May Day emerged out of the fight for an 8-hour day in 1886 in Chicago, where striking workers clashed with police, resulting in several deaths and four of the protesters were later hanged. In the context of a new President using grandiose promises of job creation to mask the fundamentally anti-worker and pro-corporation nature of his policies, it is as important as ever that we put forth a true vision of economic and worker justice for all people and a Just Transition on this day.
This administration is intent on destroying our bodies, our homes, our communities and Planet Earth. Will you join us to stop them, and help build the world we want to live in? From the People’s Climate March to May Day and beyond.
Give to grow the resistance and help us raise 10k by May Day!
Donate here to get us started!

SAVE THE DATE – FRIDAY APRIL 28 at 2pm
JOIN THE IT TAKES ROOTS RED LINE ACTION in DC
Join us April 28th in Washington DC as we unite as Mother Earth’s RED LINE to take direct action against the corporations and politicians driving the extractive economy.
The day before the People’s Climate Mobilization (link), on April 29th, we’ll form a red line to defend our planet, protect our people & communities. The Red Line is a line that cannot be crossed. We draw a red line through the militarization of the federal budget, and the rising wars at home and abroad, and the “dig, burn, dump” economy. We hold a red line to defend our environment, our homes, our families and our future generations. We will work to build a just transition towards “local, living economies” where communities and workers are in charge. We demand an investment in communities and sustainability, and a divestment from militarism and extraction. t
Will you hold Mother Earth’s Red Line with Indigenous, Black, Brown and Frontline communities on April 28th?
Contact Jaron (firstname.lastname@example.org) to get involved! Or sign up on our facebook event page (link), more details to come.
We are building a just transition in our communities, moving away from capitalism and exploitation of our bodies and the earth and towards sustainable and healthy solutions. We are taking action to stop pollution and poverty at the source, confronting multinational corporations that profit from and create the current climate crisis.
In the streets of Washington DC. Details to come.
On April 28th, the day before the March for Climate, Jobs, and Justice, at 2PM
We will be forming Mother Earth’s Red Line. We will need YOU to be there to defend, resist, and protect. Wear red.
