Good Trouble Lab - 11/19 2020

A Non-Violent direct action teach-in open to all students of social justice​

Although we have witnessed an unprecedented uprising of citizens in the fight for social justice through these past months, many of you may continue to wonder ‘what is it that I can do, and how can I do it?’ The William Monroe Trotter Collaborative for Social Justice will hold a nonviolent direct-action teach-in entitled ‘The Good Trouble Lab,’ in which participants will receive training on how to engage in nonviolent direct action, and moreover, how students can leverage their position and voice to effect real change. The session will examine how students across the globe and at Harvard have successfully engaged in non-violent direct action, and the steps for building your own campaign. Dr. Erica Chenoweth and Rev. Stephen A. Green will join us as guest speakers.
