Global Unites commits to work with these leaders and the movements they lead because they embody the four pillars of Global Unites. Conflict Transformational approach , Non – Violent , Grassroots (non partisan , organic bottom up approach ) and youth led.
Stage 3 – Alliance Strategy
Global Unites will then work alongside these local leaders and their movements to help them build their movements, increase their capacity for broader nationwide impact.
