The Resistance Manual (resistancemanual.org)

A project by StayWoke The Resistance Manual is a wiki cataloging the various groups, projects, and actions taking place and laying out the ways in which you can get involved in a specific fight.

The site is organized by cause (eg: Obamacare/ACA, Policing, etc…) and contains not only things that you can do to get involved, but also info on the right’s positions and ways to counter those messages.

Indivisible Guide (indivisibleguide.com)

Indivisible formed shortly after the 2016 election with the goal of providing guidance and support to the various groups resisting the Trump agenda. They have published a written guide and provide numerous other organizational resources.

What is Rust Belt Rising?

Rust Belt Rising is envisioned as a coalition of progressive activists working to unify and promote the Rust Belt as a voting bloc. We hope to achieve this through:

  • Coordinating amongst the various Rust Belt communities to speak and vote with a unified voice.
  • Engaging within our communities to demonstrate the value of progressive values and platforms as they relate to the Rust Belt in Particular.
  • Focused community outreach and canvassing in neighboring “red” districts to promote progressive policies beyond the metropoles.

This organization is still in its infancy and at this stage could use all the support it is given. If you are interested in involving your own community in this effort, please use the contact page to reach out.
