Action Planning Worksheet

How to Use this Tool

This tool offers you questions to consider when planning an action to combat injustice. It takes into account the possible outcomes of an action strategy, the risks and obstacles involved, the time for implementation, the supporters needed, and where they might find them.

Questions to consider when action planning:

  1. What action do you want to take to interrupt or combat sexism, racism, classism, etc.?
  1. What resources or materials, if any, would you need to achieve your goal?
  1. How can you get those resources?
  1. What behaviours or steps would taking this action entail?
  1. What is a realistic timeline for carrying out the steps involved in this action plan?
  1. What hazards or risks are involved?
  1. Is this action worth taking that risk? (If not, go back to number one, or think through what could be done to minimize that risk).
  1. What obstacles might you encounter?
  1. What could you do to overcome these obstacles?
  1. What supports do you have?
  1. Where could you find more support?
  1. How can you measure/evaluate your success? (How can slow change be differentiated from failure?)
  1. What other questions should be considered?
