University conference trains students how to protest
A recent “Practical Activism” conference held at UC Santa Cruz trained students how best to protest with a “Protesting 101” workshop that offered “tips and methods for organizing, mobilizing and participating safely in protests.”
It was among nine workshops offered at the activism conference, with the protesting one promising to teach students how to become a “driving force for social change,” according to its online description.
The daylong event was held Oct. 20 at the Northern California public university, located in a city well-known as an enclave for progressive-liberal causes and policies.
Additional workshops offered to attendees included “Intersectional Perspectives on #MeToo,” which addressed the efforts to “reframe the #MeToo movement” with the session geared toward “undocumented women, Indigenous women and students of color.”
Another was “Showing Up for the Transgender Community: Allyship in a Transphobic Society,” which served to “educate cisgender people about the complex intricacies of allyship to the transgender community.” The leaders of the workshop gave “tangible action items” to “counter and dismantle transphobic language, policies, and structures.”
