  3. Some guidance in case of protests that may turn violent: “If you are not down to physically fight these fuckers, please stay off the front lines. You'll get hurt and your pacifism will be a liability, resulting in others being hurt. Run support. We need more support.
  1. -Go to a street medic training.
  2. -Run jail support.
  3. -If you're good at using the internet (as in better than average), learn how to securely (and correctly) doxx these people.
  4. -If you're a creative type, write a zine about anti-fascism (we can chat about specifics if you can't think of anything)
  5. -If you're EMT trained, HOST a street medic training.
  6. -Become a legal observer through the National Lawyers Guild.
  7. -Set up letter writing events to send to political prisoners.
  8. -There's a lot of parents who want to fight but can't because of their kids, watch their kids for them.
  9. -If you can cook, organize food drives/pot lucks for the larger demonstrations.
  10. -Help people in more counseling/therapy ways.
  11. -When organizing, inclusivity is not optional, and is mandatory to win.
  12. -Listen to the concerns of those most affected.
  13. -If you are white, use that privilege to engage your racist relatives and neighbors in thoughtful discussion to change hearts and minds so that burden doesn't fall on our comrades of color.
  14. -If you have friends on the front lines, ask them what they need. Ask what you can do to help
  15. -provide a safe house for people who need to be secure after being on the front lines”[j]

“Every time that Trump circumvents the condemnation of white supremacists, this low-hanging bar dips lower.”

Thoughts from a contributor: There is an urgent need to stop telling the world what is good and bad. As a Jew I am MORE BOTHERED that FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION is controlled than seeing the content of a neo-nazi blog.  Let these people speak EVEN IF THEY SAY WHAT IS REPULSIVE to you. The RIGHT OF SPEECH of people we do not agree with is essential. The control of this speech by blocking hosting is far worse than the content these sites contain. --Ardan Michael Blum

disclaimer: I started this list as a resource for people (esp. white people) who felt outraged about the events in Charlottesville to learn about and act against white supremacy. I feel committed to keeping this a community effort, which also means that a lot of different opinions are contributing to the list. As one individual, I don’t feel that I should be filtering everyone’s contributions—rather, I hope that this list spurs dialogue and, above all, action. Obviously, if a racist/phobic organization is put here, I’ll remove it. However, for now, I’m trying to accept everyone’s suggestions and/or leave their comments for public view. I promise to update as quickly as I can—due to the high web traffic, the doc keeps crashing—which I suppose is a good problem to have in the grand scheme of things.

[a]do more here

[b]Can we organize this list into sections? contacting government, education, supporting organizations and individuals, campaigns for action, countering protests

[c]This website features the objectives and atmosphere the organization wants to promote onto youth through the arts in the classroom.

ALSO: Ticketing, Update Feeds, Communication Portal, Donation Portal, & Promo Video

[d]check out and join with Working Educators, a group within the Philadelphia Federation for Teachers! www.workingeducators.org

[e]All this information can be a bit overwhelming if you are not someone who can read a bunch of information and understand it right away. Along with this document I would really urge white students to have white ally training on campus. White People 4 Black Lives did a great workshop that I heard was very helpful. This is also a great way to start a coalition of allies. https://www.awarela.org/white-people-4-black-lives/

[f]SURJ Worcester is a group for white allies. I haven't personally been to a meeting yet but I hear they're good.

[g]All of these fundraisers have been fulfilled and many have doubled or more the contributions for which they asked! Supporting other local and national organizations listed below may be a more helpful option now!

[h]still underfunded!

[i]WHATTT!!!!

[j]DUDE COMMON

[k]This rally has thankfully been cancelled

[l]I think a spreadsheet of every police station in the country would be useful here, as we can have multiple people calling down the list or taking on their own jurisdictions, and start finding out which places have had anti-bias training. Spread sheet should have the name, addy, phone number, contact(s), also a list of resources that you could send to the police for anti-bias training (such as local organizations that teach that) - and most importantly, DATES, make sure we're calling at least once-a-week and keeping note of it.

[m]I'm in agreement about this. It's a solid way to increase police accountability

[n]Here's a great place to start with the list compilation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_state_and_local_law_enforcement_agencies

[o]I bet local black lives matter and ACLU chapters have targeted areas and projects in the works that you can get on-board. Might be easier than re-inventing the wheel. There are people who have been embedded in this kind of work for years, and they probably need more support. Maybe an excel of organizations that need more support on their projects would be a good idea? Also, these training issues end up being for of a budget issue to law makers than anything else.

[p]Solid points, Andrea! And if it's a budget issue, could we go old school bake sales to raise money?

[q]https://www.policeone.com/law-enforcement-directory/

[r]What are the "peaceable assembly" requirements and is there a document or article that outlines them that I can read?

[s]Walmart came out strong against Trump's stance. https://us3.walmartone.com/pages/stories-and-news/articles/a-message-from-doug/

[t]Is there a list somewhere that can be referenced for what other corporations should be boycotted?

[u]Can we add lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people too?

[v]Nazis also hate us queers :)

[w]Added! :)

[x]I think there are some nonprofits that deal with representation in media/Hollywood. I'm not really sure how to get them, but it would be nice to have a list here.

[y]Can we add lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people too?

[z]Nazis also hate us queers :)

[aa]Added! :)
