This is a living page that will be updated with new tools and resources over time.

Anti-colonial resources

Groundwork for Change is a useful website that provides introductory information about things like treaties, residential schools, land and water rights, along with explaining concepts like colonialism, privilege and settler. It also has practical advice on how non-Indigenous peoples can build just relationships with Indigenous peoples.

Anti-racism resources

Taking Responsibility, Taking Direction: White Anti-Racism in Canada” is a book published in 2005 by Sheila Wilmot. I highly recommend it.

Sheila provides solid theory and historical detail about racism and anti-racism in Canada from a feminist anti-racist socialist perspective. The closing chapters have excellent practical advice on what white organizers can do to put their anti-racist politics into practice.

Self and collective care

Who Cares? The Politics of Care in Radical Organizing.” This is a great editorial in Upping the Anti that is critical of the politics of “self care.” It’s not an accessible piece but useful for people who think about this stuff.

Thoughts on How to Stay in the Struggle” by David Camfield offers practical suggestions for radical organizers. I consult this piece in times of political stress, anxiety and fatigue.

Finding Steady Ground.” This awesome resource provides “7 behaviors we can use right away to strengthen ourselves, so we can keep taking more and more powerful and strategic actions.” I also suggest signing up to receive their occasional reminders and encouragement.

Organizing

Another Politics: Talking across Today’s Transformative Movements” is an excellent book by Chris Dixon on radical organizing that centres racialized, LGBTTQ* and marginalized voices. Chris conducted dozens of interviews with grassroots organizers and provides concrete advice on organizing, group structure, process and plenty more. A must read.
