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.
Even in today’s increasingly complex world, average citizens are often better equipped than professionals and academics to fight and win electoral and issue-based battles. In the second session of Resistance School, grassroots organizer Sara El-Amine explores the ineffective emphasis recent elections have placed on mobilizing compared to organizing and how organizing now will allow us to better mobilize in the future. Sara then dives into the key components of successful issue-based and electoral campaigns, focusing on the importance of the people involved in those efforts. Finally, the session ends with ways every one of us can try to persuade fellow voters, not simply in attempt to win elections, but as a more fundamental exercise in strengthening the fabric of our democracy.
