Resistance School

 

 

NDTDW is actively using what is taught in Resistance School along with the teachings of Dr. George Lakoff (author of “Don’t Think of an Elephant”) explore our progressive values and learn how to “frame” them in a way that will actually persuade 2018 voters to vote for Democrats! 

The live sessions are over, but you can visit the website and view all the session on-line.  Just click the link below.

Resistance School is a free four-week practical training program to sharpen the tools we need to fight back at the federal, state, and local levels. Our goal is to keep the embers of resistance alive through concrete learning, community engagement, and forward-looking action.
