Online Activist School Announces First Session Courses

The Alliance for Global Justice is proud to present our first session of courses for the AFGJ Online Activist School. This first session we will be offering five courses, designed for both new activists to develop skills and knowledge to become organizers and for long-time organizers looking to hone their skills in particular areas or to increase their knowledge base.

Course Title Description
Journalism from the Grassroots In this course, activists will be taught the key precepts of journalism, specifically writing for the web, developing sources, doing background research and how to have their work be read by a wider audience.
Using the Freedom of Information Act to Support Organizing This course will introduce activists to the Freedom of Information Act and walk them through the process of filing and pursuing a request.
Organizing for Alternatives to Military Recruitment in the Schools This course teaches activists about the relationship between militarism and our education system and focuses on how to educate youth and build alliances to raise awareness about what military service entails and alternatives to it.
Privatization of War: The Role of Private Military Companies in US Foreign Policy Learn more about the modern day mercenaries used by the US government and the impact these private military contractors will have on the future of militarization.
