I never heard of Ariel Speedwagon Federow until I came across their (her? his?)  amazing start to a survival guide for the new realities of the United States. The Oh Crap! What Now? Survival Guide is editable and expandable, and it’s already pretty damn thorough. (I sent one addition to Ariel on Sunday and it is already in the guide.)

Categories as of now are:

  • Health
  • The Legal System and You
  • Responding to Hate
  • Self Defense
  • Housing
  • Food Access
  • Money
  • Digital Security
  • Orgs to Support
  • Other Guides, and
  • Recursos en Espanol.

You can be sure that more will come.

Ariel is very clear:

MEDIA PEOPLE: I know you look at this and see a story. It’s pretty fucking cool. Please protect this as a community resource. Email ariel@theworldisaterribleplace.com if you want to talk about it.

I checked; personal blogs are encouraged to share the link. I feel sure you will find it useful, be able to improve it, or both.

Please adapt as you need for your own community. It would be awesome if you shared those adaptations and documents back for others’ use as many of us are facing similar questions.

And I did a little research on Ariel, hoping I could find preferred pronouns, which I couldn’t. But what I did find out is that Ariel seems like an amazingly cool genderqueer performer, whom I will now watch for in that role as well.
