Keeping our community groups healthy, resilient and well-organised makes us powerful for the long term. The Strengthen People Power network is making sure our groups build strong norms, internal connections and communication and have fun together too.

  • Slack. Connect with your group and the wider ACF Community on instant messaging platform Slack.
  • Action Centre. Organise group meetings, send emails to group members and welcome new members.
  • ACF Community principles. Check out the community principles and discuss with your group how you want to engage in politics and campaign together.
  • Worksheet: developing shared group norms. Run a session to develop shared norms for your group, so you can all decide how your group will work together, communicate and make decisions.
  • Guide: Host a gathering. Organise a social potluck or nature outing to have fun as a group, build relationships and invite new people into the fold.
  • Take care of yourself. Keep your activism sustainable, avoid burnout and build resilience in yourself and group members.
