A Shift group is a month long commitment to learn how to create change on issues that are important to you. Over the month, you complete five acts a week. An act might be:
- signing a petition
- contacting your Member of Parliament
- emailing a local business
- having a courageous conversation with a family member about something important to you
Each act contributes towards a more just, inclusive and sustainable society.
Everyone who joins a Shift group comes with their own interests, passions, and level of experience as an activist. Some people are really active on one issue and want an opportunity to explore new things – others don’t know their MP. Shift is the perfect launchpad for any person who wants to start using their voice and power to create change, no matter how experienced.
Like any new skill, activism and civic involvement takes practice. Over the month you get space to practice, and support to flex your democratic muscles. You will learn skills, meet some amazing people and build confidence along the way.
