Issues surrounding civil rights continue to spark intense debate and protests around the globe—driving people to mobilize and push for meaningful change. But being an effective activist takes more than passion and guts. Activists need to channel and focus their protests in nonviolent ways to leverage change, because violence plays into the hands of those with power, while nonviolence catches power off-guard. Effective activism requires strategic planning, engagement, discipline, and training.

Drawing on the deep expertise of leading practitioners, this multi-session, 100-minute speed course on nonviolent organizing, advocacy, and action will teach you the skills needed to be an effective, informed, and prepared activist.
