Our Activities

To accomplish our Vision and Mission, Solidarity 2020 and Beyond seeks to be a connector and coalition builder supporting numerous projects, networking, and working group initiatives driven by the voice and requests of grassroots activists and movements. These currently include: interactive webinar series, sharing and convening meetings and presentations of grassroots activists, convenings and meetings of allies, participatory action research and data gathering, emergency funds initiative, advocacy, psycho-social models and support, resource lists, and Social Media Campaigns to include blogs, vlogs, online articles, and podcasts.

The common thread with grassroots activists we support are those waging campaigns and movements utilizing nonviolent resistance to fight for dignity, equality and human rights under international law.

We are a network organization that was founded shortly after the pandemic crisis started in April 2020 and as our name states, we stand in solidarity and have created a space of 150+ activists from grassroots organizations and initiatives mainly from the Global South. We have been connecting them with each other, helping with funding and submitting grant proposals, training them in nonviolence and we are also connected with what we call our organization committee comprised of scholars, academics, journalists, and psychologists.

We are contacting you because we would love to be a part of the Namati community as we would love to share resources regarding Legal Empowerment which is a huge part of what the grassroots we are in contact with are in need of right now and the need will only grow bigger.
Electra Lennartsson is the network champion (main point of contact) for Solidarity 2020 and Beyond.
