Who are we?

Resistance Guide was authored by leaders of Momentum, a training institute and movement incubator. We study what makes or breaks movements. And we teach people how to incorporate the best techniques and strategies of protest into their ongoing work for social justice.

We are organizers, researchers and trainers who have decades of experience between us in many social movements. We’ve organized to defend the rights of immigrants, to leave the fossil fuel economy behind and stop climate change, to dismantle racist power structures, to fight for international peace and justice, and to bring an end to corporate money in politics. Our organizations are hard at work together to stop the Trump/GOP agenda.

Momentum has trained hundreds of grassroots leaders in dozens of organizations throughout the United States and internationally. We invite you to sign up for a training with the Momentum Institute to learn how to put the work of this guide into practice.
