Solidarity Resources for Organizations
Often during movement moments or societal crises, organizations may contemplate drafting and releasing Solidarity Statements to convey their support of the demands and perspectives of partner groups and affected community members.
If you’re in that position, we invite you to work with BMP’s resources:
- Writing A Solidarity Statement: Considerations and Process Questions. We developed this as part of our ongoing workshops and trainings about transformative solidarity practice. In the resource, you’ll find questions to reflect on before, during, and after drafting a solidarity statement. You’ll also find examples of important moments that could catalyze a Solidarity Statement and examples of inspiring statements from different groups and networks.
- Constructing Solidarity Narratives in Challenging Times. In this resource, we share frequently asked questions and offer direction and ideas for nonprofit and movement partners to consider in moments of crisis.
- Solidarity Narratives in Crises: A Practice Guide. In this bonus episode of the Solidarity Is This podcast, Shanelle Matthews, founder of RadComms, joins host Deepa Iyer to discuss how organizations can shape solidarity narratives in a time of crisis.
