What is Collective Action?
A community-led process for advancing equity and achieving social change.
It’s the movement of a group of people impacted by and impacting a challenge who share power, trust, resources, and effort to achieve a common purpose.

Collective Action Backbone Learning Series
In 2023, Root Cause hosted a free virtual learning series focused on backbone support for collective action work. The three 90-minute workshops in this series are designed to be interactive and practical, with participants engaged in practice and dialogue with backbone teams, Root Cause collective action practitioners, and peers.
Backbone teams provide critical support infrastructure to collective action initiatives. They play a key role in ensuring that the initiative…
- Maintains alignment towards the common purpose
- Commits to a culture and process that is equitable, relationship-driven, trustworthy, and transparent
- Continuously learns, adjusts, and improves their work together
- Follows the community’s lead
