Accountability and White Anti-Racist Organizing : Stories from Our Work
Some white people are moving beyond limited and simplistic models of colorblindness, diversity and multiculturalism to developing accountable relationships with people of color. Bonnie Cushing and her fellow editors have put together a startling and edifying collection of articles that provide us with a deep insight into the minds of those who have been transformed by their work as whites engaged in anti-racist organizing.
It's so easy for people engaged in social change work to get lost in our own self-righteousness and lose a perspective on the limitations of our own impact on those whom we imagine we have come to help. Come save on used books in the Clearance Aisle.

This is something easy to understand in concept, but sometimes more difficult to apply in practice. In "Accountability and White Anti-racist Organizing," a select and dedicated group of white-identified anti-racist organizers from around the country tell personal stories and offer lessons from their everyday experiences that reveal how the notion of accountability informs their work. As we build the Flood, and more people become involved, the work will live in the hands of the people taking action at the local level.
Rising Tide is working to partner with Showing up For Racial Justice SURJ and other anti-racist groups to create curriculum for training local Action Councils on white allyship in the global social justice movement. Because Flood the System has created some movement energy and because we have upfront principles around anti-racism, as we tour for Flood the System, we hope to do open public workshops on the intersections of white supremacy and the climate crisis for groups affiliated with Rising Tide and more traditional environmental activists.
In the short-term, we are providing local action councils with materials on anti-racist organizing principles through the Flood the System Organizing Booklet.

Flood Action Councils Encouraged to Organize for Childcare, Food and Transport Anti-racist organizing means recognizing the barriers individuals face to participate in the organizing because of needing childcare, the cost transport and the reality that many low-income People of Color struggle to secure daily meals. The Fundraising Working Group of Flood the System is working to gain material resources that will support the entire project, in addition to local action councils creating their own fundraising strategies.
