HOLY SH*T! 7 Things To Do Instead Of Hoarding Toilet Paper

Recommendations include:

  1. Take leadership from the most impacted – Effective activism requires providing appropriate support to — and taking direction from — those who have the most at stake.
  2. Make the invisible visible – Many injustices are invisible to the mainstream. When you bring these wrongs into full view, you change the game, making the need to take action palpable.
  3. Simple rules can have grand results – Movements, viral campaigns and large-scale actions can’t be scripted from the top down. An invitation to participate and the right set of simple rules are often all the starter-structure you need.
  4. An abundance of tactics – Tactics for building a sense of community include mass distributed phone-banking, hashtag campaigns, artistic vigil, and more. 
  5. Practice cultural disobedience – Civil disobedience is the deliberate violation of unjust laws. In a similar spirit, cultural disobedience bravely subverts dominant cultural norms.
  6. Let’s be careful with each other, so we can be dangerous together. Flatten the curve so we can rise up together for the long haul. Rest and joy are also radical acts.
  7. Now is the time to build a solidarity economy. A tradition of radical economic organizing that strives to replace dependence on exploitative economic relations with “solidarity chains” linking community-based alternatives.
