  1. I am wondering if you might add a link to Turning the Tide: Journal of Anti-Racist Action, Research & Education and/or the Inter-Communal Solidarity Committee. Neither is exclusively “white” but both are committed to the struggle to uprooting white supremacy and to de-colonization. You can see something about the Inter-Communal Solidarity Committee on a facebook page at facebook.com/intercommunalsolidarity. “Turning the Tide” has been published for almost 25 years by Anti-Racist Action-Los Angeles/People Against Racist Terror.

  2. I have a couple of recommendations for your readers. The first is an article called “White Adults Raising White Children to Resist White Supremacy”: one of the few pieces I’ve found on this topic.

    The other is a book by one of the members of Feministing, called “Do It Anyway: The New Generation of Activists.” Author Courtney E. Martin is extremely attentive to issues of race, class, gender, and her own white privilege. She uses case studies of effective activists to humanize rather than lionise their work, and to help the reader wrestle with her own questions about doing meaningful work.
