Training Exercises

Spectrum of allies

  • To understand who our allies and opponents are.
  • To help in realizing that tactics need to be planned in relation to how much they do or don't attract key allies and move people towards being active allies.
  • To encourage more optimistic mobilization efforts through a realization that it is not necessary to win over the opposition to our point of view.
  • To invite people into the fascinating complexity of strategizing.

Pillars of power

1. To identify the pillars holding up the power structures we want to overcome.

10-10 strategies

This exercise helps people learn about the rich history of nonviolent campaigns, getting a better understanding of campaigns, tactics and movement

Speak out

  • To motivate members of a dominant group to process information about injustice.
  • To turn some power dynamics upside down so the dominant group can experience what it is like when others have an uninterrupted opportunity to dominate the “air time”.
  • To build more solidarity among those who have less power so they can support each other better in an organization or a workshop.
  • To create a norm that the dominant group can support each other to change rather than depend those who have less power to have to “teach them”.

Conflict line

To have an experience on how we deal with conflict or how we often think about violence as a solution to solve a problem. An exercise to begin to question our militaristic mindset and challenge ourselves to find nonviolent and win-win solutions.

Hassle - Parallel line

To give people an opportunity to solve a hassle or conflict using nonviolence. To practice what it feels like to be in both roles in a conflict. This is a good introductory exercise for many situations.
