Projects in Our Focus Areas:
Around the world, PAGE chapters are taking continuing action across our four focus areas. If your PAGE group is interested in getting involved, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll support you and connect you to other PAGE groups doing similar work.
PAGE is working on a list of legal and support resources for folks abroad who will be impacted by US immigration and refugee policy. Write to us if you have ideas or want to help coordinate.
Reach out to local Muslim leaders in your country of residence and ask how you can provide support to them during this time of heightened Islamophobia and immigration bans.
Connect and work with local groups supporting refugees in your country of residence. As the United States closes its borders, we can work to ensure that refugees have options.
Environment and Climate Change
TheMarch for Science is on April 22. Find out if there’s a sister march in your community. If not, think about organizing one! If that’s not possible, consider reaching out to a scientist in your country of residence, and see if there is an opportunity to promote their work, on social media or through other channels.
The People’s Climate March is April 29. Find out if there’s a sister march in your community. If not, think about organizing one! If that’s not possible, use this opportunity to reach out to an environmental activist in your country of residence, and see if there is an opportunity for your PAGE group to support their work.
The growing global climate movement 350.orgis organizing global divestment activities the week of May 5-May 13. See if there’s a divestment action in your country of residence! If not, consider reaching out to local environmental activists to organize one.
Global Corporation Watch
Divest from the Dakota Access Pipeline. Organizers around the world are targeting the banks which have invested in DAPL. See a bank in your country of residence? Reach out to us and we’ll help you get started with divestment action.
Global Trump Boycott. While you might think that most of the resistance action is happening in the US, we have a special edge being abroad in that we can target and organize against Trump’s international businesses. Consider organizing a boycott in your community of residence.
US Foreign Policy + Aid
Trump has proposed MASSIVE budget cuts to the State Department and USAID. PAGE is organizing a coordinated response here, which involves coordinating with Indivisible groups in the US, keeping an eye on various congressional committees and organizing global social media pushes. Stay tuned.
Thanks for your work with us!
