LOVE TRUMPS HATE
Workshops, protests and resistance to hate.
Food Not Bombs groups are helping resist the racists, misogynistic, and homophobic hate expressed by Trump. We are ready to help defend the environment, resist assault on civil liberties, plans for more war, cuts in social services and support those threatened with deportation.
Many people that have little experience in protest are taking to the
streets. Food Not Bombs volunteers are organize workshops to help those
new to protest learn and practice the basic skills need to organize
effective protests. Food Not Bombs workshops include information on how
to promote actions, unite coalitions, what can happen if you are
arrested and how to organize legal support. These workshops will help
you plan and participation in acts of nonviolent direct action. Many of
the skilled needed for successful organizing can be found in our book
Hungry For Peace. Check with your local Food Not Bombs group to find
workshops on protesting Trump's campaign of hate.

Affinity Group Formation
groups is an important first step in resisting fascism. An affinity
group is simply a voluntary group formed around a common goal or
interest. Such groups typically have five to ten participants who know
one another and meet at least once a month, sometimes as much as several
times a week. An affinity group provides a space for discussing tactics,
strategies, and specific actions. It also provides a place to work
cooperatively on projects. Importantly, it also serves as a means of
mutual support and validation, a means of overcoming the crushing
isolation that keeps people alone, disempowered, and hopeless; it can
provide inspiration and stir the imagination in these dark times.
Who Will Stand Up to Donald Trump? We Will!
