There really is something to "think globally, act locally" as policies that are global are usually created and implmented locally. An example of this is "Sustainable Development" also known as Agenda 21. The best results come from getting enough people together to work locally. Successes have been achieved by activists attending various board, state, county and city meetings, petitioning, calling newspapers, and other means. Meetings can be learned of by checking your news paper or searching county and state pages on line to learn of their upcoming meetings.

Sometimes petitions work (when aimed at smaller institutions or a company) and sometimes just exposing the agenda or the corruption of a politican deters or minimizes their actions. This page is dedicated to sharing examples of successes achieved through activism.
