More on our network

ActionAid's Activist Network is driven by a dedicated group of volunteer Community Leaders responsible for building a movement of activists in their local community. Community Leaders are part of their local ActionAid group, help organise events and campaign actions, bring new people into the movement, and build their leadership skills along the way.

A grassroots network of volunteers taking action in solidarity with the women we work with around the world. If you want to be part of leading that - apply to attend a local training above! 

We know that so many of the injustices women are fighting around the world start right here in Australia - and by standing in solidarity, we can support the women we work with to win campaigns that protect women’s rights and build sustainable alternatives to business-as-usual.
