Join a working group

Extinction Rebellion York organises and delegates tasks to small groups called working groups. Joining a working group is the best way to use your skills to help XR York.

Working groups function autonomously in line with our core principles and regularly report back to the wider group.

We currently have 6 working groups. To find out more about a particular working group and how you can best get involved, email the coordinator.


Our communities group build relationships with local communities and organisations and help them get involved in what we’re doing.

Actions and Logistics

Our actions and logistics group organise and steward actions as well as providing logistical support from transport to tea towels.

Arts and Music

Our arts group create and perform all the arts and music for our actions as well as holding arts and music workshops.

Media and Messaging

Our media group send out press releases, manage our social media and website, and do photography and graphic design for events and actions.


Our finance group keeps track of the donations we receive and how we spend them.

Regenerative Culture

Extinction Rebellion places huge importance on having a culture that is positive for everyone. Our Regen group work to ensure everyone’s wellbeing, before, during and after actions, and the rest of the time as well!
