Resource organizing is a strategy we use to mobilize people — and your unique talents, time, skills, donations, ideas, and networks — to support the movement for racial and economic justice. 

You can activate networks of friends, families, colleagues, employers, favorite organizations, and local businesses to organize resources and fight for freedom together.

Host your own peer-to-peer fundraiser 

No previous experience is necessary – we’re here to support you! 

Ella Baker Center’s volunteer Resource Organizing Committee has created the Peer-to-Peer Resource Organizing Toolkit as an easy guide to help you engage your friends and family.

This is a fun and easy way to organize your community to support the fight for liberation.

Academy for Leaderful Action (ALA)

At EBC, we know that long-term solutions to the injustices of incarceration require reallocating resources out of prison systems and the punishment economy and reinvestment into our communities. 

This starts with each of us – educating ourselves, creating communities
of resistance and organizing collectively to meet the needs of our neighbors.


Wherever you are, whatever you’re bringing, there is a place for you in this movement. 

When you join the Academy for Leaderful Action, you become more than an individual contributor; you join in Ella Baker’s legacy to bring leaderful change to our communities through reflection, shared passion, and mobilization. 

Our goal is to help you feel at home in this movement with us. Because we will win the way we always have: together.
