keeping with the theme of creating the world we want, I offer these resources I found while searching for this. A lot of people, it seems, have this on their minds. I find this encouraging.
Many people have said I am a cheerleader type, meaning encouraging. So let’s go, everybody! Have some fun, stick together healthily, and know you can further impact the things you care about.
Also, take care of yourself on the way. Many of us have our plates already full with work, (paid and unpaid) people we love, illness/disability issues and advocacy for what we need and want in various ways. This is not meant to overwhelm but support you. Take what works, leave the rest and pay attention to your needs.
The resources below discuss or show the power of words. More to follow on other topics later.
Note: These resources span political and religious beliefs. If something speaks to you and helps you, great. If not, leave it for someone else.
Note : Many images may be disturbing/triggering. This has good information from the UK, and a definite punk, direct action, resistance focus reminiscent of zines as a political medium etc. Shows protest pictures and lots of risks that are part of that.
