The Resistance Center will act as the connective tissue between communities, organizations, faith institutions, and elected officials. We will build capacity of neighbors and people of goodwill throughout the Connecticut River Valley to address community crises as they arise, while working to prevent future outrages through pro-active action.
We will do this work through building resilient and effective coalitions and partnerships; nonviolence training; advocacy against U.S. military intervention abroad and militarism at home; and broad popular education and action to combat systemic discrimination. We seek to educate and empower communities to confront problems and find lasting solutions which build unity, demand justice and foster peace. We work to expose the broader connections between militarism and economic disparity, and we actively promote ways that people can break the resulting cycle of violence.
