Love the People #2: Defending Our Demonstrations

In episode two of AORTA’s Love the People Webinar Series, we cover the following topics:

  • interventions at our rallies and marches
  • de-escalation tactics and principles
  • creative ways to support collective action

Note: This webinar session introduces the concept of movement marshaling, but is not meant to take the place of an in-person training. We hope this webinar will spark your interest in learning more or continuing your practice of marshaling if you already have one. 

Many thanks to our guests for sharing their inspiring stories with us:
