Welcome to the Lynn Williams Activist Toolkit, an exciting new project of rabble.ca currently in Beta. The Toolkit is a wiki-style section of the rabble site devoted to content collaboration. It contains a growing number of encyclopedic resources that you can write. The Toolkit is named after activist, organizer, and labour leader, Lynn Williams, whose commitment to social justice has inpired generations of United Steeworker activists. Read more about Lynn Williams here. Participate in the Toolkit! See our User Guide, and please check out the toolkit blog and podcast.
