Anti-Racism Resources

Solidarity Over Supremacy Whidbey was formed in November 2020 by a group of Whidbey Island volunteers, leaders, farmers, parents, activists, friends, workers, and retirees to build an understanding of, and opposition to, anti-democracy extremism and white supremacy on the island.

9-2022, Notes from Solidarity Over Supremacy:

Well, we have good news and we have bad news. 

Let’s start with the bad and get it out there: far-right extremists based on the island are ramping up their hateful attacks on trans people in Port Townsend, and are organizing militia, Proud Boys, and other extremists to spew their threatening rhetoric on communities who don’t want them there. To be clear, despite Washington 3% leaders calling themselves “civil rights activist organizers”, their recruitment videos paint a different story. 
Their goal is to intimidate everyone in our community, especially LGBTQIA+ folks—and people of color—into silence, into giving up our freedoms to vote, to speak, to love, and to gather. The further risk is that progressive, white moderates will also be silenced. 
But it’s not going to work. 

In response we must be aware, educated, and connected to respond by standing together for our core values of safety, equity, and inclusive democracy. 
Now here’s the good news: we put together a video to help our community understand and recognize extremism as we move into the election season and beyond.

Please take eight minutes to watch and share this homegrown explainer video, based on an important visual, The Pyramid of Radicalization. We apply the pyramid to local militia leaders and far-right political candidates here in Island County who are amplifying misinformation and hateful rhetoric. 

We are planning an event in October, so please stay tuned!  With warm solidarity, SOS Whidbey Steering Committee



These resources were compiled by Sarah Sophie Flicker, and Alyssa Klein in May of 2020 and are intended to serve as a resource to white people and parents to deepen our anti-racism work. If you haven’t engaged in anti-racism work in the past, start now. The document is located here.
