Dear rabble readers,rabble.ca was born out of protest nearly 19 years ago to address the media bias we saw in the coverage of activism. Since then, we have been allies of social activists and progressives. We don't just talk the talk. We walk the walk. Our bloggers, writers and podcasters at rabble.ca are often out on the frontlines, organizing the marches and doing the work.

In the past decade, the Canadian right-wing media have gained momentum. As progressives, we need ways to coordinate our work so that our vision of Canada flourishes. One concrete way we promote this at rabble is through the Lynn Williams Activist Toolkit. Lynn Williams is remembered as a strong union leader, but he was also a strong supporter of social activism. He wanted to build ways for activists to work together more effectively. The toolkit continues to develop new ways to amplify what organizers are doing, and to share, discuss and create tools for organizing from the ground up.
