This week, students at Harvard will start their first day of Resistance School. According to the website, the class is:
“Resistance School is a free four-session practical training program to sharpen the tools we need to fight for our values 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.”
The sessions will be live-streamed, but they will also be recorded to view later. It’s free and anyone can sign up to view them.
Shanoor Seervai, a student at Harvard’s Kennedy School and one of the co-founders of Resistance School, said:
“Resistance School started with a couple of students chatting with a couple of professors, having a sense of outrage and despair and beginning to feel overwhelmed and exhausted with the question of ‘What are we going to do after the election?'”
The four sessions are:
- How to Communicate our Values in Political Advocacy
- How to Mobilize and Organize our Communities
- How to Structure and Build Capacity for Action
- How to Sustain the Resistance Long-Term
You can enroll in groups or individually. Over 10,000 people have signed up for the first session. Check them out over the course of the month.
