If you’re in the area where one of these new offshoots, or one of the 150+ existing offshoots, exists, get involved! In the least, shoot them a message to establish communication. Just knowing there are people of like-mind in the area goes a long way. If you do have time to collaborate, whether by sharing or creating content online, or by meeting up in person to hit the streets or help hold know-your-rights trainings, that’ll really help to strengthen this community centered on the fact that badges don’t grant extra rights.
If there’s not-yet a group in your community start one! There’s no mandatory process on the way your group has to take shape, though clearly we can learn from each other. As you get started you may find value in this document: Start A Group. Once your group gets off the ground, this document may provide some ideas on how to continue to gain traction to have an even bigger impact: Grow A Group.
