Towards Collective Liberation is for activists engaging with dynamic questions of how to create and support effective movements for visionary systemic change. It offers lessons for transformative organizing through a firsthand look at the challenges and the opportunities of anti-racist work in white communities, feminist work with men, and bringing women of color feminism into the heart of social movements.

In addition to stories and reflections from personal activist experience, there are also case studies of anti-racist social justice organizations working in white communities around the country. The primary focus of the book is on how we can transform divisions of race, class, and gender into catalysts for powerful vision, strategy, and movement building.

Books will be available for purchase.

Chris Crass is a longtime organizer working to build powerful working class-based, feminist, multiracial movements for collective liberation. Throughout the 1990s he was an organizer with Food Not Bombs, an economic justice anti-poverty group, strengthening the direct action-based anti-capitalist Left. In the 2000s, he was an organizer with the Catalyst Project, which combines political education and organizing to develop and support anti-racist politics, leadership, and organization in white communities and builds dynamic multiracial alliances locally and nationally. He has written and spoken widely about anti-racist organizing, lessons from women of color feminism, strategies to build visionary movements, and leadership for liberation.
