September Rebellion is Extinction Rebellion Youth U.S.’s nation-wide campaign during September 2020. The primary objective of this campaign is insisting on environmental justice by centering vulnerable communities in the national conversation around climate change.
An equitable transition from unsustainable practices.
Reparations and remediation led by and for BIPOC community leaders.
Respect of Indigenous sovereignty.
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
9R is open to everyone – we hope that many groups beyond XRYUS local groups take action with us. If you or your group wants to get involved, start by reading our one-pager. If you would like to host an in-person action or take part in the postering/stickering campaign, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to post about September Rebellion on your social media, email email@example.com for our pre-made graphics.
THE THREE COMPONENTS
The three components for this campaign are “Paint the Streets”, Non-Violent Direct Action, and Digital Education via social media. Throughout the month of September, XRYUS’s Local Groups will coordinate guerilla sticker & poster campaigns that incite conversation around these values, host NVDA actions, and educate about environmental racism on social media.
PAINT THE STREETS
NON-VIOLENT DIRECT ACTION

This toolkit will serve as a guide for all climate activists in these trying times. We have made a guide to digital organizing and not only planning for actions (digital and future physical Non-Violent Direct Actions). Here, you can find guides for organizing digital actions and helpful resources to weather this storm while practicing social distancing.
In all of our actions, we practice strategic nonviolence because it works: nonviolent movements are roughly twice as successful at realizing their goals than violent uprisings, more successful at creating stable transitions to a system of change and more inclusive. We also emphasize verbal nonviolence. Some rebels have spiritual, faith-based, or guiding moral beliefs in regards to the practice of nonviolence which is considered principled nonviolence. This position is also welcome in XR. This guide explains how to act rebelliously and properly.
