About Group Membership
The Stand Community Organizing Centre offers annual Group Memberships to any group or organization committed to supporting The Stand Community Organizing Centre’s mission, has completed the registration process, and is approved by the Board for membership.
Our Mission: The Stand Community Organizing Centre is a hub that helps build social movements by facilitating the exchange of knowledge, resources, and mutual support to work towards social, environmental, and economic justice within a decolonizing framework.
Like stands of trees, our goal is to co-create a sustainable ecosystem of symbiotic relationships that nourish and sustain the lithe activist community.
