The Organizing Upgrade is committed to providing current information, facilitating discussion, and promoting “big picture thinking” on a wealth of different activist topics.
The site brings together blogs, informative articles (much like rabble!), and places for strategy discussion. It’s all directed to activists and divided by issue – here’s a sampling of the topics that the Organizing Upgrade covers:
-War and Militarism
The content is fun and tailored to “left organizers” as the site proclaims. After all, who wouldn’t want to further develop their activism and skills with “Expecto Patronum: Lessons from Harry Potter for Social Justice Organizing” or “Reebok Dropped Rick Ross. Now What? Five Questions for Activists Who Want an Even Bigger Win”? Exactly - no one.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
