Appreciation for the Commons

The Commons is an incredible go to for campaign, organising and movement wisdom – so many relevant resources all in one place! Our team refers to it on a regular basis, and shares Commons resources with grassroots leaders and groups we work with.

Charlie Wood, Tipping Point

I’m motivated by a new social change go-to portal, Commons Library. It’s an elongated epiphany for anyone interested in learning how to build collaborative and effective movements for social and ecological justice.

Maya Newell, director of In My Blood It Runs, quoted in the Saturday Age

The Commons library is a wonderful one-stop shop for social change resources. The site is useful, easy to use, comprehensive, and best of all it’s free! It has really helped me prepare training for our volunteers on meeting with their MP, doing a power analysis and other topics. I’ve recommended it to several of my keen volunteer organisers and use it myself regularly. 

Lexie Keller Sheard, TEAR Australia

The Commons is a great hub for anyone who wants to get involved in the progressive movement. It has such a variety of tools, resources, readings and guides and caters for all people, no matter how far along they are on their activist journey. It has resources for almost every topic under the sun and ones that link everything together – the focus on intersectionality is refreshing. 

Aliya Ahmad, Democracy in Colour

What a tremendous and user-friendly resource The Commons Library is. As the only employee in my organisation that works on advocacy, organising, and campaigning I rely on the library as my instant brains trust. The website is intuitive, the librarians knowledgeable, and the collection is constantly growing. I recommend the library to all my colleagues and our organisation’s volunteer advocates.
