United States: Students at Harvard University have organized a four-week anti-Donald Trump activism course, which will begin on Wednesday. The Resistance School, as the course is being called, has been designed by students at the university’s John F Kennedy School of Government and is open to people from across the world. It is also stated free.
On its website, the Resistance School has described itself as a practical training programme that will sharpen tools needed to fight back at the federal, state, and local levels. It has also mentioned that the goal is to keep the members of resistance alive through concrete learning, community engagement, and forward-looking action.
The course comprises four in-person and live-streamed sessions, which will be held through the month of April. The topics for the sessions deal with how to communicate values in political advocacy, mobilize and organize communities, structure and build capacity for action and sustain resistance. Among the speakers for the course would be Cultural Historian Timothy Patrick McCarthy and Sara El-Amine, Executive Director of former United States President Barack Obama’s advocacy arm Organising For Action.
Further, the sign-up form on the website has urged applicants to come in groups.
