Welcome to the Resistance.


Two Ways to Get Involved:

Why is Resistance School live-streamed?

Resistance School is about community. We’re asking you to convene a group to watch together and work as a community to take action - both locally and nationally. During our sessions, we’ll connect members of the Resistance to one another through a nationwide classroom and real-time conversation. Speakers will provide interactive breakout sessions to allow your group to practice skills and develop plans that fit your local context. We’ll feed questions from the virtual audience back to the speaker to tailor our syllabus to your needs. Convening live across the country, we’ll build the energy we need to move forward together.

After each session, we encourage your group to spend time as a community: stay and chat, plan your action, grab a bite, and build the relationships we need to take back America.

Have questions or suggestions during the session? Send us an email. Tweet us. We’d love to hear from you.

In Person

  • Live in or near Cambridge, MA? Join us in person.

    Due to overwhelming interest in Resistance School, we have reached in-person viewing capacity for Session One. We are working our hardest to find a larger space for Session Two in order to accomodate all of the folks wanting to join us. For now, if you're local to Boston, please arrange a live-streamed watch party for Session One. If you've already registered to watch in-person, we'll be in touch about details!

    Rather than offer standalone events, the goal of Resistance School is to develop a comprehensive set of skills over the course of the month. We’ve designed the four sessions in April as a curriculum, with each one building off the previous. We strongly encourage you to tune in to all four so that you can walk away with a balanced resistance toolkit.

  • Sign up to attend the live sessions.

    Here's the schedule:

  • Want to tune in remotely? Join us online.

    We will livestream each Resistance School session online for participants to tune into in real-time, so you can watch from anywhere nationwide.

    Your participation can take many forms. Are you a member of a local Indivisible group? Have you and your friends been discussing how to start engaging politically? Are you part of a congregation, student club, or neighborhood group and are looking for tools to strengthen your organizing? Use Resistance School as an opportunity to convene for a few hours throughout April to learn more about how to organize and mobilize your community behind the issues you care about, and develop a plan of action.

    While we believe in the power of technology, we believe that the resistance also requires our building community face-to-face. To that end, we encourage people to watch the online sessions together in person. Feel free to invite 5 friends over to tune into Resistance School by huddling over a laptop in your living room, or gather 100 community members in a local auditorium to watch the sessions on a projector. Resistance School will look different to each group, and we’re here to help you brainstorm how best to make it work for you.
