Local Group Sign ups

Action Network is the software system used for the XR UK’s email list. As the name suggests it really is a ‘network’. If you use Action Network and sign someone up to your Local Group, they will automatically be signed up to regional and UK lists. This means Local Groups can have a huge impact on the total numbers on the UK email list. The more Local Groups that use Action Network, the stronger XR becomes as a whole.

For Outreach Volunteers

There is a tailored link for every local group in the style joinxr.uk/xxxxx
If it's working it will lead you to a pale blue form - (get in touch if your link isn't set up yet.)

  • e.g. joinxr.uk/lambeth or joinxr.uk/cardiff which adds people directly to your email list. They can sign up themselves (you can use this link on posters/banners/flyers etc) - or you can use this form to enter data after getting sign ups on paper.

In this folder - you can find GDPR compliant paper sign up forms and QR codes that point to your local group. Also templates for printing simple posters.

For Local Group Organisers

This map shows all the known Local Groups within XR UK. Most of these have an email list (although not all groups are using their list!). You can update this map if you have any info to correct by emailing map@extinctionrebellion.uk

If you need help accessing or using your own Local Group email list, and you have a rebel willing to take on that role you can request an Action Network training session.

You may already have an email list that isn’t on Action Network, but using the XR UK network is really important for mass mobilisation, so get in touch!

Bonus opportunity: XR UK mailing list currently with 170,000+ people signed up, some of these people have given us their postcodes, but haven’t found their way to a local group yet! By requesting training on Action Network, you can also request a search of postcodes in your area to find these ‘floating rebels’.

Feel free to contact your 3.5 LG Supporter, your regional Gardener or the Action Network Data Team for more support.
