Take Action

Knowing the truth is one thing. Doing something about it is another.

We invite you to do something by becoming an activist for food sovereignty and the human right to land, water and food.

Current actions:

  • Tell TIAA to Go Deforestation and Land Grab-Free!: TIAA (formerly TIAA-CREF), one of the largest investment firms in the US, has over several hundred million dollars invested in land grabbing and deforestation that has resulted in human rights violations around the world. Ask them to stop profiting from industries that are causing land grabbing, deforestation and climate change, killing endangered species and violating human rights.
  • Take Up Berta’s Struggle: Lend your name to continue Berta Cáceres’ struggle to protect the Gualcarque River and indigenous territories in Honduras from megaprojects like the Agua Zarca hydroelectric dam.
  • Demand Justice for Landless Families in Brazil: Please take action today and show Brazilian officials that the world is watching what happens to the Dom Tomás Balduino encampment and will not stand for continued violence against landless families exerting their constitutional right!
  • Demand Justice for Communities in the Rio Doce Valley: Join Grassroots International today in urging Brazil’s national and state leaders to respond to the demands created by our partner the Movement of People Affected by Dams (MAB) which has been working with the communities of Rio Doce Valley for years and was among the first NGOs there after the disaster.
