On December 19th , there were protests in 50 states and the District of Columbia asking electors to either not cast ballots until intelligence briefings are provided by the US government or not to vote for the nominees for which they were chosen.
Executive Director, Michael Beer, trained 200+ nonviolent captains on hastily organized conference calls. Nadine Bloch, long time NI associate and co-founder of Beautiful Trouble provided the other trainings and pulled together the training outline.
To the best of our knowledge the actions have garnered lots of attention and have been nonviolent. These protests were successful for 2 reasons.
1)More electors have defected from Trump than any other presidential candidate in US history.
2)Many of those trained, were first time activists.
We urgently need to train the next generation of activists in the US and around the world. Please become and monthly donor to help Nonviolence International provide more nonviolent trainings.
