Extinction Rebellion Capital Region

Extinction Rebellion (XR) is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience in an attempt to halt mass extinction, climate breakdown, and minimize the risk of social collapse. Extinction Rebellion Capital Region (XRCR) is the local chapter of XR. 

At the core of Extinction Rebellion’s philosophy is nonviolent civil disobedience. We promote civil disobedience and rebellion because we think it is necessary- we are asking people to find their courage and to collectively do what is necessary to bring about change.

All are welcome who want to adhere to our principles and values of:

A shared vision of change

A regenerative culture

Openly challenging ourselves in this toxic system

Reflecting and learning

Welcoming everyone and every part of everyone

Actively mitigating for power

Avoiding blame and shame


Autonomy and decentralization
