Activist Legal Skills

School of Consciousness and Transformation ANTH 6182 1.00

In this activist skills course, we aim to share skills and existing resources among a diverse range of activist organizers to enable students to understand the legal repercussions of activism, including coordinating their own legal support and ways of asserting civil and political rights before, during and after actions. Likely areas to cover include the history of progressive legal work; know your rights; legal solidarity; legal direct action;  the role of the National Lawyers Guild; legal support for political prisoners; computer security; grand jury; theory of police tactics at protests; nonviolent street tactics; elements of activist legal support; and arrest support and legal observing.
