Hi! I'm LC, and this is Spoonless Activists.

We're a community for anyone who wants to do something about this world we're in, something to make it a better, more humane place - but is short on resources. Low spoons? Not much cash? Not much time? I wish I could say "we've got you", but at this stage we don't have much of a plan, just a desire to make it easier to help.

As we develop plans and strategies, I'll update this post.

Thoughts? Ideas? Drop them in the comments below.

Smart Bitches, Trashy Books has a link post today that looks like it might lead to some useful resources: http://smartbitchestrashybooks.com/2016/11/getting-involved/

I haven't followed up on many of them yet, though, so I'm not sure.

I filled out a volunteer form for the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has an option for "remote" activism. I assume it will take awhile for their volunteer coordinator to get back to me, which is a fairly standard thing for most organizations. I think most of the remote outreach is social-media based, also monitoring news outlets/hate crime reports.

(If you don't know much about CAIR, here's their mission statement.)

It occurred to me the other day that a useful thing for people with phone anxiety might be an internet chat where we could hold each other's virtual hands while we make important calls.

Not sure yet if I have the spoons to organize this, tho.
