Activist Resources

If you’re looking to follow or get involved in a particular cause, this list of activist groups are notable for their effectiveness and longevity. While there are thousands of organizations dedicated to myriad causes, we curated these organizations specifically around their ability to both raise awareness and get things done in the political realm and invite participation from the masses.

Red Wine & Blue

We are a sisterhood working to change the world together, one suburb at a time. Red Wine & Blue provides everything women need to successfully organize in their communities and beyond. Want to get stuff done and have fun along the way? Join us.

This one is a referral from Unf*cker Cynthia G. who wrote: “If Unfuckers want to join in on something, this is a good place to start. They have other sub-groups that focus on single issues like fighting book bans. These are more nationally focused. The Troublemakers Training is hyper focused on four states because frankly we can't afford to lose these at this point. There is no cost for joining these groups but donations are asked for. I didn't feel any undue pressure to join in, or make a donation. For the people in deep red states this might be an option. If you can't make a change in your state, perhaps you can help out others in a purple state. Offer what skills you have to other groups. The goal is to get more progressives into the senate and state legislatures.”

Rural Urban Bridge Initiative 

The Rural Urban Bridge Initiative invites liberals and progressives to think differently, talk differently and act differently in order to understand the causes of the rural-urban divide and then do something to repair it. We develop political, economic and communications strategies that build bridges and serve the common interests of working and middle class Americans.

This one is a referral from Unf*cker Glenn S. who wrote: “I thought it might fit into some discussion of "How do we speak outside our regular circles and actually help people in their lives."

Code Pink

A feminist grassroots organization working to end U.S. warfare and imperialism, support peace and human rights initiatives, and redirect resources into healthcare, education, green jobs and other life-affirming* programs.

Action Network

Action Network tools are made for—and with—teams at people-powered organizations that want to build broad support and foster deeper relationships with supporters. Our tools are made to help you capture a moment, rally supporters to your cause, and sustain relationships with activists to build a stronger organization with lasting impacts. Since launching in 2012, Action Network tools have helped the Women’s March mobilize huge rallies across the globe, helped the DNC raise millions for candidates and organizations, and much more. The Action Builder toolset, launched in 2019, helps dozens of unions and progressive organizations empower leaders and build strong organizing campaigns.


Indivisible was founded in response to Trump’s election - but we know that Trump is a symptom of a sick democracy, not its cause. We face two fundamental problems: first, our democracy was rigged from the start in favor of the white and wealthy. Second, in the last few decades, an alliance of white nationalists and the ultra-rich have been actively working to further undermine democracy and cement their hold on power permanently. That’s how we ended up with Trump. We have to build a democracy that reflects a broad, multiracial “we the people,” one that works for all of us and is sustained by all of us. Only then will we be able to achieve a progressive vision for our future.
