A Radical Guide Launches IndieGogo Campaign to Raise Awareness and Create Mutual Aid and Community
The deadline to support this initiative is November 19th, 2021.
San Francisco, CA – A Radical Guide is pleased to announce the official launch of its crowdfunding campaign on IndieGogo.
A Radical Guide is a site that connects movement leaders and activists from around the world. The organization’s purpose is to lift up and raise awareness of people and movements who are building a world that works for all – one that centers its success around mutual aid, cooperation, and community. To achieve this purpose, A Radical Guide provides a comprehensive directory of historical and current locations, people, and places of interest highlighting the diverse world of resistance.
In the organization’s most recent news, A Radical Guide is promoting its current IndieGogo campaign designed to expand its reach and raise awareness of the diverse world of resistance. Donations to the campaign will enable A Radical Guide to seek out, and partner with, groups and individuals to document their work and share their stories through video. Additionally, it will support work with groups who produce live events, such as anarchist book fairs, panel discussions, and more, to help record their events and broadcast them live to an audience who cannot attend in person.
“Oftentimes, movements and people who work to challenge the current worldview are suppressed, isolated, and removed from public knowledge – especially during the ongoing global pandemic,” says founder of A Radical Guide, Jason Bayless. “Our goal is to focus on people who are creating a better world for all – a world that is not rooted in capitalism, competition, white supremacy, patriarchy, and hierarchy, but rather in mutual aid, cooperation, and community. This crowdfunding campaign will provide the necessary updates so we can extend our efforts and shine the light on work that is often hidden from the mainstream.”
In addition to the existing IndieGogo campaign, readers will also have the opportunity to fund an eco-anarchist collective based in Davao, Philippines.
The deadline to support this initiative is November 19th, 2021, with perk items including stickers, tote bags, journals, beanies, coffee mugs, clothing, and packages.
