If you support us in what we do you can let us know in any number of different ways. The easiest is to help us build the networking and organizing potential of the Lokashakti Network by signing up for an account. This will enable you to do a few different things: connect with fellow activists and activist groups, add an organization, project, or place to the Network, or promote an event through our Events Calendar. As time goes on you'll be able to take advantage of even more organizing tools, as well as help build our Library and Encyclopedia projects. If you'd like to help promote us, a great way is to connect with us on Facebook and Twitter. Other ways to get involved, like making a much-needed donation so we can continue our work, can be found here.
Thank you in advance for however you decide to help.
