A selection of organisations whose work intersects with ours and may be of interest or assistance to people engaged with working against state oppression.

TSW UK is officially supported by Northern Police Monitoring Project.

NPMP is an independent, grassroots organisation working with communities facing police harrassment, brutality and racism based in Greater Manchester. They monitor the policing of marginalised communities and aim to support and draw together various community campaigns in response to policing. They also provide advice, support, advocacy and access to specialist legal assistance for individuals and families, as well as community outreach initiatives and educational projects including know-your-rights workshops in relation to police 'Stop and Search' powers. Learn about their work here.

The following organisations do not have a formal relationship to TSWUK, but we believe their work to be important and relevant to our own. All are UK based unless otherwise specified.
