Every time I open your newsletter I’m amazed by the amount of work that’s gone into gathering topical content so quickly. I don’t know how you do it. Thank you.

Sign up to The Commons Newsletter

The Commons sends out a monthly newsletter filled with resources for social change. It’s a great way to find out about new additions to the library as well as existing content that’s relevant to current circumstances.

The Commons Librarians track needs in social movements to prioritise additions to the library and featured content in the newsletter. We aim to make information accessible and reduce the amount of time you need to spend searching and filtering for what you need.

Past newsletters have featured resources on creative activism, digital campaigning, organising, nonviolent direct action, disaster relief and recovery, campaigning during the Covid-19 pandemic, and much more. Visit the newsletter archive to view past editions.
