Grassroots International

Grassroots International works in partnership with social movements to create a just and sustainable world by advancing the human rights to land, water, and food through global grant making, building solidarity across organizations and movements, and advocacy in the US.

Grassroots International envisions a world in which a universal commitment to the health and well-being of the earth and all its peoples, fueled by successful global movements for economic and climate justice, has transformed production practices, consumption patterns, and economic and social relations to ones based on sustainability, equity, and the rights to land, food, and water. Our partnerships recognize that change is successful only when people in their own communities organize to confront the root causes of their problems.
