SHARE, SUPPORT, AMPLIFY: RAPID RESPONSE LIST
Resource Movement operates an opt-in email list, the Rapid Response Support List, which connects list recipients with time-sensitive asks for support from social justice organizers and members of marginalized communities. As of January 2021, the list has approximately 340 members and has moved $300,000 in support. Requests shared with the Rapid Response Support List members focus on addressing systemic change; centering the leadership of people impacted by the injustices they are fighting; and building power within marginalized communities. Get more info on what it is and how to contribute here.

My - or my family’s - access to wealth puts me in roughly the following percentile of the Canadian economy*:
