Sessions

Fall 2017

Video sessions are only part of what you'll find here.
The rest is what you and your fellow organizers and activists bring.




Resistance School @ Berkeley has three main parts:

Video sessions from experienced organizers, academics, and experts recorded live in front of audiences of organizers, activists, and students.
Follow-up readings that reinforce the skills learned in the session, enabling you to apply them directly your group's mission and work.
A collaborative space on the Slack platform, enabling organizers to speak to each other, collaborate, strategize, and coordinate strategic messaging.

Access all three parts for each training on the session pages below:
