Act

Living our values of equity and justice requires us to educate ourselves and take individual and collective action. We’ve collected resources and ideas for how to get involved and suggestions for how to respond in situations of racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.

What we offer is by no means a comprehensive list, nor do we aim to keep you posted on every opportunity available around the nation. There are plenty of other sites that do this beautifully, such as The 65, which offers weekly calls to action with scripts for calling your legislators to urge them to take action.

Legislative advocacy is critical to change. This website describes what it is, why it’s important, when to engage in legislative advocacy, and specific steps you can take to work with lawmakers and lawmaking bodies.

Bolder Advocacy discusses non-legislative advocacy and offers tools for community organizing and other ways of getting involved.

Action.org provides advocacy toolkits about advocacy 101 and concrete steps for developing advocacy skills.
