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.

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

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.
