Resistance School is a free four-week practical training program that will sharpen the tools we need to fight back at the federal, state, and local levels. Our goal is to keep the embers of resistance alive through concrete learning, community engagement, and forward-looking action.

Resistance School was created by a group of Harvard graduate students who found a lack of education for would-be activists: What really are the most effective ways to get people organized, convince others of their positions, and keep activism rolling through time and challenges?

I’ve watched the second (two-hour) video myself–though it’s an option, no signup is required to watch–and I found it both illuminating and easy to understand. Any group can learn from the Resistance School lessons, including those affiliated with other organizations, making it an ideal companion for both new community activists and longtime veterans.
