Resist believes in grassroots organizing, creativity, and power.
Groups that are aligned with Resist will fit most of the following criteria:
- Their work is located within an ecology of social justice organizations. They are aware of how their work fits into a greater whole. Work reflects a clear understanding of purpose and function within movements for social change
- Have an intersectional / cross-issue analysis
- Work actively against white and Christian supremacy, capitalism, gender, and sexual oppression, and all forms of patriarchy
- Are led by those most affected by structural oppression
Resist funds groups that:
Groups that organize, base build, engage in direct action, and cultural organizing. Groups organize within communities for structural social and economic change. Groups develop tools for consciousness-raising, including popular education and radical pedagogy development.
Groups that actively build new systems that provide alternatives to the ones we’re fighting now. These groups live into transformative justice by creating community-based alternatives to dehumanizing or inaccessible institutions and systems. This work might look like: alternatives to policing, urban gardens, cooperative childcare, etc..
Groups that are creating through arts and cultural work and all forms of creative resilience building. Groups that are healing through sacred resistance, sustainability, ritual, bodywork, and other embodied healing for communities engaged in the work of liberation.
