If you’re interested in becoming part of the Rising Tide Network let me be the first to welcome you.
Before you go any further, however, we’d like you to take a look at our What is RT? section, especially the Rising Tide Principles. Groups interested in joining the RT Network should be in alignment with these basic principals that help shape and guide our work.
As well, please familiarize yourself with how our different RT Network support structures operate and what our various Working Groups do and how they function.
There are basically three different ways to get involved with Rising Tide.
The RT network is made up of a lot of individuals who live in isolated places, already work with organizations and don’t have the capacity to start something new, or simply can’t creat a climate organization from scratch right now. If you decide to become an RT Contact you will have access to our RT-Local list, a post-able list that connects you to all the other contacts and chapters in the network. As well you will receive our general newsletter and be able to join the various RT Working Groups.
We encourage all our contacts to start thinking about what organizing in their local communities might look like. The biggest part of the reason for the RT collective’s existence is to support new groups starting from scratch in local areas. Check out our Resources for Network Groups section to find out all the ways Rising Tide can help your group get on its feet. All the RT Network group function autonomously, so you won’t have anybody breathing down your neck telling you what to do. The RT collective is here to help and guide, not demand that your group focus on only one thing in one particular way. As part of the Network you will be connected to other groups via our RT-local list, optional bi-monthly calls with other groups, access to all RT support resources, and ability to join RT working groups.
If you are interested in becoming an RT Chapter please email us at
for more information.
If you are already a part of an existing group or organization, and you agree with the RT Principals, we invite your organization to join our network. Many other existing groups have found alignment in becoming a part of Rising Tide and forged new relationships with other grassroots radicals and frontline community organizations and individuals. Again, all network group function autonomously so in no way will joining the RT Network affect the work your organization or group is already doing. As a part of the Rt network you will have access to all the mechanism for organizing and communication available to any other Network Group.
