resources for organizers

I’m in the process of building a more cohesive list of tools and resources for change agents. This is still a work-in-progress. Check out Build The Wheel – new wiki resource for organizers to share curriculum and training tools.

A lot of this curriculum was adapted from, or developed by these outstanding training organizations: the Ruckus Society, Movement Generation, smartMeme, casagordita, Training for Change, RANT collective, Beyond the Choir, Midnight Special Law Collective, Organizing for Power, and School for Unity and Liberation (SOUL)

Hi Joshua
Thanks for sharing this great collection!
You and others may be interested in the resources available on the Change Agency’s website. We’re a crew of activist educators based in Australia and predominantly working in Australia and the Pacific.
Most of our training resources are here: http://www.thechangeagency.org/01_cms/details.asp?ID=4
We also have some projects eg action research on the climate movement, advocacy evaluation etc. I’ve also collated articles and resources around anti-oppression (http://www.thechangeagency.org/01_cms/details.asp?ID=95) and sustaining activism (http://www.thechangeagency.org/01_cms/details.asp?ID=100).
Love your work!
Cheers
Holly

Extremely useful, thanks Josh – using some of this to help layout a pack I’m creating at the moment on crowd funding for communities 🙂
