Anti-racist anti-oppression organizations

To add an organization submit the form here

This list is being curated by @verywhiteguy with special thanks to Professor Fleming - @alwaystheself for the inspiration & starting the curating & collating list of orgs via twitter.   

Criteria for inclusion:

  • Groups/organizations that work with or accept white folk
  • Groups/organizations with an intersectional/racial lens and focus
  • Preference for organizations led by Black folk & those that materially benefit black folk

I strive to only add organizations that meet the above criteria, but have only performed a cursory review of organizations and groups listed below.  If there is a question or concern about a group or organization listed below please complete this form
