A Collection of Social Justice Mailing Lists

I've always been an avid reader of newsletters, magazines, journals and, of course, books. And the internet has multiplied beyond imagining the amount of text and image that can fill one's reading hours. Here's a few of the lists about social justice activism and popular education to which i am subscribed:

Social justice events, news and resources in Toronto:
  • Rise Up! News and Events
    • Compiled and published by long-time activist and educator Anna Willats, this is a very comprehensive listing of social justice and advocacy events in Toronto. To post an event, subscribe, or unsubscribe, just send a plain text message to awillats@sympatico.ca
  • Toronto Social Forum
    • Started by activists who were inspired by the Porto Alegre initiated World Social Forums, this list shares information and resources about social justice activism with a strong international focus.
  • Centre for Social Justice
    • A Toronto-based research centre, their list promotes events and resources mostly in Toronto including campaigns with which they are associated.
  • Planning Action
    • A group of activist planners, they've got a great list about planning related happenings, debates and more.

Beyond Toronto
  • The Popular Education News
    • An excellent newsletter, written and published by Larry Olds (long-time adult educator from Minneapolis) that features events and resources abut popular education - mostly in the US and Canada.
