Do you want to change the world, but you’re just not sure where to start?
Are you looking for resources, opportunities, tools and inspiration to challenge injustice and harm and reimagine what is possible? Do you want an AGENDA: a plan and a toolbox for young social change makers and those who support them? In this toolbox, we offer 20 different ways you can take action in your schools and communities. And, for each, we offer extended examples and additional information specific to sexual violence prevention (just click on the gray circle on the upper right of each page).
This toolkit expands the creative, inspiring work of Emma Renold, a scholar and activist in Wales, who created the original AGENDA in partnership with young people and the Welsh government—something unthinkable in the US and most other countries around the world. We encourage you to combine Emma’s beautiful and creative activities with our “Step-by-Step Guide to Building a Campaign”, and these tools to demand a better world!
This toolkit is just the beginning! We know that so many of you have already launched inspiring and impactful action campaigns. Your stories could be so useful to others who are in the thinking, plotting and planning stages of their projects. If you have a story that you think would be useful to current and future activists and you want us to publish it as part of this toolkit, please share it with us! You can write about HERE. Thank you!
We also added a special track for those of you who want extra tools related to Sexual Violence Prevention. Click HERE for more details about these additional tactics and then click on the Sexual Prevention logo on the upper left of every page and you’ll find more guidance. And for a list of SVP resources, click HERE (but please note that this list is only a beginning – please contact us & let us know what’s missing and we will add it!)
So, let’s get started! Just click on one of the techniques, strategies or activities below, grab some friends, teachers, activists or other allies and get to work.
This creation of this toolkit was made possible thanks to generous funding from the Bingham Program.
