Our Principles

We are a decentralized organization, that means that we encourage everyone to bring Cosecha to life and develop Cosecha circles, villages or affiliate. We want to make sure we grow dramatically, the way we can do that by keeping unity is by following our principles below, remember you don’t need permission from anyone to start Cosecha in our home.

Theory of Change

Cosecha comes from learning lessons of the past and learning from other movements.

Our theory about how can millions of people can massively non-cooperate and get the government and country to react to our demands is based on the work of Erica Chenoweth, please check out her Tedtalk on her work of “why civil resistance work”

If you are a community organizer and want to understand our theory please check out the Momentum Training Program initial webinar.
