More on Local Organizing and Resistance

Resistance In Context is a conversation between grassroots organizers, historians, and scholars, exploring examples of resistance and their significance. The Civil Rights Movement, Abolitionism, Women's Suffrage, Stonewall - there have been many instances of resistance over the course of our history; indeed, America was born out of acts of resistance. And while resistance has often been a stance of dissenting citizens protesting various forms of injustice over time, in the current era, resistance has become a mode of action for many more Americans.
