Huddles are part of the 10 Actions for the First 100 Days campaign, which launched at the Women’s March, and will mobilize millions to win back the country and world we want.
We’ll visualize what a more equitable, democratic, safe and free world could look like four years from now -- and we’ll work backwards to figure out what we need to do, starting today, to get there. Huddles are meant to be inclusive, action-oriented, productive, and grounded in the tradition of nonviolent resistance.
Your Huddle doesn’t need to last longer than 90 minutes, but can be as long as you want! Here’s a quick overview of the agenda, with detailed facilitator notes below. Feel free to adjust the time that you allot to each activity or modify individual activities to fit your unique Huddle.
--To get to know each other and build a community of support with defined team roles that will continue to meet regularly for collective action in your area.
--To envision what it will take to pick an issue you can tackle in the next 10 days, and mobilize our community to create the society we want.
--To define a set of actions and strategies that our group will pursue in the coming weeks and months
