Free tools for healthy Activisms
These are tools for the long game, as well as, the immediate, in the fight for social justice. They are
tools to help activists build trust, as they build bonds necessary for coalition, while engaged in political
campaigns to repair and replace the systems and legal structures that oppress the voices and will of the
people. They are diversity and communication driven tools, so that we can fight on multiple levels of
identity and fusion politics, in an honest effort to address the needs of all people. Peruse them, use
them, they are free for your use. Feel free to develop them as your first business when engaging the tool
presented and entitled, Build an Economic Engine. This is the time where it will benefit you to honor the
words of your grandmother when she said, “never look a gift horse in the mouth” accept this gift in
gratitude and make use of them.
Suggestions for Use:
Begin with the prevention and healing tools entitled “Burnout”. It’s a tool designed to improve
wellbeing and reduce inner conflict. It is a necessary tool for activists engaged in an ever changing
dynamic, which results from the pursuit of the mission of your organization. It is an excellent tool for
resistance fatigue. It literally takes only three minutes twice a day to get started.
Next I suggest you take a look at the tools for building an economic engine, for your organization,
because it creates a space for building economic independence. The tool provides a business plan
format, a formula for success and an inspirational story of a business entrepreneur combined with
historical analysis geared for today’s activism, in social, environmental and economic justice
movements. Finally, this tool can be implemented by developing the Coalition Bridge Tool Suite into a
first business. Should you choose not to use the economic engine, do use the chapter entitled, The
Power of Story, for use with the 2 nd and 3 rd Coalition Bridge Tool Suite.
Lastly, use the Coalition Bridge Tool Suite immediately, to build the necessary bonds of trust, in
effectively engaging and communicating with others outside your usual mix of contacts, when building
political campaigns. I suggest you use them first with the usual mix of contacts, to gage familiarity and
work out any kinks in your style of presentation.
