ISF Grassroots Report

Lead by example! If you have started a Grassroots movement in your community which aligns with ISF's mission, we want to know about it. Please fill out the below questionnaire telling ISF how you are making a positive change in your community. Your story could be featured on our website!

We are looking for: 

  • Specific stories pertaining to activism regarding the Environment, Creatures and/or Youth
  • Stories which have interconnected activism for the Environment, Creatures and Youth
  • Stories of specific actions and programs you have created which align with our mission 

If you are unsure on where and how to get started, visit the Grassroots Tool Page  for resources which are designed to guide and assist activists with tools to turn their passion into action.

We look forward to hearing from you!
