Useful Resources and Important Causes

Updated: Jan 23, 2021

This is a compilation of links that were gathered in a Twitter Thread for the purpose of expressing solidarity and partaking in a form of online political activism that does not involve being a part of the increasingly toxic political discourse that is found on Twitter and other social media sites.


Disclaimer: These links were selected on the basis of their usefulness for people who want to donate, signal boost, learn about or otherwise support people in need. In no way are they meant to represent online activism as an alternative to irl political activism, direct action, electoral campaigning or any such activities. Furthermore, an inclusion of a link is not necessarily an endorsement of its author and everything they might have said or done, it is simply an acknowledgement that the link in question might useful to someone. The point is solidarity.
