Illo for an essay on Ise Bosch, an activist that has resources:
With the money she inherited from Bosch, the company her grandfather founded, she supports and founds projects for women, girls and LGBTIQs.
The garden where all the projects can flourish is a collage of some of her projects: Dreilinden gGmbH (3 limes), Filia, die Frauenstiftung and Astraea Foundation as well as her character and hobbies.

You wanna be an ally? You wanna “punch Nazis?” Keep reading. Look, people. This is fucking serious. Please read.
We aren’t glitter bombing Nazis. We aren’t throwing flour on them. We definitely aren’t going to peacefully shut them down. They want to kill us, they said so in Charlottesville. They made it very clear where they stand and how they plan on taking action. Their violence needs to be met with great force.
If you are not down to physically fight these fuckers, please stay off the front lines. You’ll get hurt and your pacifism will be a liability, resulting in others being hurt. Run support. We need more support.
-Go to a street medic training -Run jail support -If you’re good at using the internet (as in better than average), learn how to securely (and correctly) doxx these people. -If you’re a creative type, write a zine about anti-fascism -If you’re EMT trained, HOST a street medic training -Become a legal observer through the National Lawyers Guild -Set up letter writing events to send to political prisoners -There’s a lot of parents who want to fight but can’t because of their kids, watch their kids for them -If you can cook, organize food drives/pot lucks for the larger demonstrations. -Help people in more counseling/therapy ways. -Help get needed supplies, such as food, water, and medical supplies. -When organizing, inclusivity is not optional, and is mandatory to win. -Listen to the concerns of those most effected.
“They called me ‘the angriest Negro in America.’ I wouldn’t deny that charge. I spoke exactly as I felt. ‘I believe in anger. The Bible says there is a time for anger.’ They called me ‘a teacher, a fomentor of violence.’ I would say point blank, That is a lie. I’m not for wanton violence, I’m for justice. I feel that if white people were attacked by Negroes –
if the forces of law prove unable, or inadequate, or reluctant to protect those whites from those Negroes
then those white people should protect and defend themselves from those Negroes, using arms if necessary. And I feel that when the law fails to protect Negroes from whites’ attack, then those Negroes should use arms, if necessary, to defend themselves.“
