Work with /The Rules

We are currently hiring an online organiser.



/The Rules (/TR) is a global network of activists, organizers, designers, coders, researchers and writers dedicated to changing the rules that create inequality and poverty around the world.

We do this in two ways. We work with the world’s leading social movements to amplify their campaigns, building capacity and deepening a global community of support. And we create content, analysis and tools to help bring more radical ideas into the mainstream.

As we work with existing social movements to strengthen their individual struggles, we’re also becoming a global community with a broader agenda for transformational change.

We’re all part of a global story. Each of us, one of seven billion characters, caught in a plot that has put a few in control and keeps a multitude in servitude. This story has a name: capitalism. And it's held together by an intricate machinery of mega corporations, global elites, worldwide trade regimes, and a totalising economic & political ideology.

Within all of us is a deep desire for connection, for meaning, for love, justice, fairness and decency. And yet surrounding this light is darkness; global forces that threaten to engulf our sense of togetherness. When we see one another clearly and dearly, put our trust and our faith in each other, we begin to see a striking new horizon – Let's be, let’s do, together.
