Hey, thanks for your interest in joining NEON.
Our economy fails the vast majority of people. From climate change to poverty, from migrant rights to the housing crisis, these issues stem from the same structural problems in our economy and politics.
NEON exists to build the power of movements for social and economic justice. By supporting each other's struggles and learning new ways to take action together, we want to see powerful movements which can end decades of disastrous neoliberalism and tackle all injustice.

NEON builds the power of movements for social and economic justice.
From climate change to poverty, from migrant rights to the housing crisis, we believe the issues we campaign on stem from the same structural problems in our economy and politics. Instead of a neoliberal system designed to enrich the 1% we want an economy that puts human need before profit, ends all forms of oppression, redistributes wealth and power across society, and looks after the planet we and future generations depend on. By supporting each other's struggles and learning new ways to act together, we aim to build powerful movements that can win.
Great, so you're on board with the big picture! Now we'd like to hear a little about what you do about it.
