To help coordinate and facilitate NYC trainings in preparation for the mid-term elections, we are organizing a series of weekly or biweekly trainings and convenings on Monday nights -- Progressive Action Night.
The goal of the series, based on Progressive Hack Night (http://www.progressivehacknight.org/), will be to systematize, coordinate, and maximize the effectiveness training opportunities and actions for volunteers and organizations looking to mobilize volunteers for the midterm elections.
During these nights, the venue will be available to organizations and volunteers looking to do “afterwork activism” -- volunteers who want to stop by, grab a snack, get trained, learn how to plug in, and do some work.
Persisters NYC is a social networking feminist collective that was launched in January 2017 as a responsive remedy to the wave of changes in the American socio-political landscape. Born out of a need for a space to serve the multidimensional identities of New York women, we hope that by gathering together we can foster open discussion and propose the solutions that will help address the issues of sexism, racism and violence that impact our lives. We aim for a better understanding of these unique obstacles by dedicating ourselves to an intersectional and progressive approach. We value and encourage the shared learning that can come from listening to the distinctive voices of others and centering the voices of women from marginalized communities.
Rise and Resist was formed in response to the 2016 U.S. election.

We work collaboratively, creatively, respectfully, and with all the joy we can muster for the health of the people and the planet.
