The key strategies and tactics that have inspired centuries of people-powered victories are now in a deck of 100+ cards YOU can play! In this training, we’ll use the new Beautiful Trouble Strategy Card Deck to guide participants through a Design-an-Action rapid prototyping game. Teams will use their cards to spark an action idea that addresses their issue & goal. Play with an array of creative tactics that activists use in real campaigns for change, created collaboratively by over 100 activists from around the world. Learn how gaming is bringing progressive ideas to new audiences & inspiring action toward holding candidates accountable and mobilizing voters for the November election.
