With the need for continued action in DC, Resist This is organizing our third spokes council for DC-area organizations and affinity groups on May 21st from 5:30 pm to 8 pm.

This space is for coordinating upcoming actions or other events, strengthening relationships between local groups and organizations, and plugging in interested new activists. It’s important that we come together to defend our communities in the time of Trump, to build connections and capacity for the long haul struggle, and to lift each other up.

From 5:30 to 6, there will be an orientation to the spokes council model for those unfamiliar with or who would like a refresher on the process. There will also be a workshop at this time on what an affinity group is.

The spokes council will begin at 6 pm and end around 8 pm. There will be time after the spokes to connect with other activists and organizations one-on-one.

Please join us May 21st, and bring along folks from your organization or cluster. Childcare and ASL translation will be provided as requested. RSVP today to attend the May 21 DMV Spokes Council!

DC organizations and clusters

What is a Cluster?

A cluster is a grouping of affinity groups that come together to work on a certain task or part of a larger action. Thus, a cluster might be responsible for blockading an area, organizing one day of a multi-day action, or putting together and performing a mass street theater performance.

Clusters could be organized around where affinity groups are from (example: Texas cluster), an issue or identity (examples: student cluster or anti-sweatshop cluster), or action interest (examples: street theater or lockdown).
