We believe that social change rooted in justice is created by people with a vision working together, building communities, organizations, and movements. Global justice starts at the grassroots level when people work together to improve the lives of their communities -- from reforesting a hillside to pressuring a mayor for clean public water -- and builds to national, regional, and international levels.
Resource rights are the human right to land, water and food, and at Grassroots International we believe that they are fundamental for a dignified life for everyone. Watch this video to learn more about it.
