In this workshop, participants will explore the history of nonviolent direct action (NVDA) through civil resistance and civil disobedience. Participants will learn the different steps needed to engage in NVDA through your campaigns and grassroots organizing. We will work through the different types of NVDA seen throughout history and in the current uprising along with the successes and challenges. Participants will have time to think through their own NVDA plans and how to be more strategic with their demands through a NVDA lens.
