Bay Resistance is Training Activists in Protest & Building Sanctuary Neighborhoods

When you watch the news do you think, “Gee, I wish I could do something about this mess?” Well, Bay Area residents, now you can because Bay Resistance is providing free activist training programs. Get organized, get educated, get in the game.
