Hold the Line Training Dates

Friday, October 16, 2020 9:47 AM | Bryan Casey (Administrator)

The following provided by Hardy Merriman, who presented at our October membership meeting via Zoom.


The authors of Hold the Line: A Guide to Defending Democracy are leading workshops to help people organize local election protection groups and ensure that the results are respected. We are researchers, organizers, and activists who've seen how people-powered movements have protected freedom and democracy around the world. 

We have just announced two new training dates:

Oct. 15+22

Oct. 20+27

We start by reviewing potential scenarios that might unfold between Election Day (Nov. 3, 2020) and Inauguration Day (Jan. 20, 2021). Then we offer evidence-based strategies to respond, and steps to plan nonviolent resistance if attempts are made to subvert the election. Participants are encouraged (but it’s not required) to read the Hold the Line guide to get up to speed: http://bit.ly/holdthelinepdf

Thanks and hope to see you there!
