Giving thanks: We share these resources with gratitude to all of our teachers and with appreciation for the value they have brought us.

The field guide is a living resource that we are consistently adding to. We receive no payment or kickbacks from contributors for sharing. Access and use of these resources should be done at one’s own discretion.

If you see a resource you like, we strongly encourage you to reach out to the author and support their work in the world through contributions, donations or by hiring them. One goal of this guide is to expand the circle of connections for powerful justice and equity work in the world.
Coming soon: A searchable list of contributors to make it easier to support members of the Field Guide.
