Resistance School is a free practical training program. Our goal is to sharpen the tools communities need to organize and make sustained change that advances values of fairness, equality, and inclusivity.
Join us for Sesssion 1 of Resistance School, How to Communicate our Values in Political Advocacy on May 15th.
This opening session of Resistance School dives into the steps necessary for engaging in effective communication for change by building on history, exploring the tools of value-based communication, and ultimately reviewing the most meaningful ways to enact this change in the world around us. This session will draw on the political history of the United States to explore how value-based communication has galvanized support for political and social movements. Historian and activist Timothy McCarthy leads us through an interactive lecture on how to develop a compelling frame and narrative for initiating meaningful conversations that build bridges and connect people through stories.
The DPMC is organizing these four sessions of Resistance School, Potluck style! We’ll have a main dish. Please bring food/drink to share! For more information and to sign up contact us!
Interested in joining us for a meeting or event? Looking to become more involved in your Democratic Party? Our Facebook page lists our upcoming meetings and events. We welcome community members to attend!
Living in McKinley County—where 60+% of the vote went to Democratic candidates- and living in New Mexico where we elected a majority of Democrats to both houses of the legislature, it is difficult to fathom that we ended up with the current President and Republican majorities in Congress threatening to take away the rights that we have fought for and won over the past 50 years.
Understandably, people are frightened. Fortunately, more citizens than ever are motivated to take action. Here are some of the ways that you can get involved in groups and actions that stand up for our values.
– Write or Call your Representatives and talk to them about issues dear to you.
– Attend your regular County Meetings
The DPMC will also be holding regular training for people interesting in getting more involved. If you are interested like our Facebook page and we will keep you in the loop on upcoming events.
