Resource Library

This library is a collection of resources to help you be the best activist and organizer you can be - both inside and outside the DxE network.

The content is broken down into main folders:

  1. Vision & Strategy: DxE’s big picture vision and our theory for how we are going to get from where we are now to animal liberation.
  2. Team Management & Relationships: How to effectively lead a team to achieve results.
  3. Event Organizing: Much of what we do is centered around events - everything from protests to meetups. Here you will find checklists for running all sorts of events. 
  4. Press and Social Media: Maximize the reach of your actions and campaigns through media. 
  5. Legal Resources: All resources related to police, civil disobedience, and the legal system. 
  6. Specific Skills/Roles: Everything from hosting a Zoom meeting to giving a speakout. 
  7. Personal Organization: Tips for managing our time well and being organized and dependable so we can achieve more for animals and become better leaders. 
  8. Other

If you’re new, all this information might be a bit overwhelming. There is no need to read everything before getting started. In fact, the best way to learn is to do, so get out there as soon as you can! Here are a few key documents we recommend checking out as an initial starting point:
