The American Civil Liberties Union wants to take its resistance from the courtroom to the streets with its new People Power campaign.

The campaign kicks off March 11 with a US-wide online event billed as “resistance training” that will be livestreamed to more than 2,300 gatherings across the country.

People Power is “the ACLU’s new effort to engage grassroots volunteers across the country” to explicitly fight the policies of US President Donald Trump, the organization says on its website. The first People Power push is to create a network of “freedom cities” that can capably use their own local autonomy to fight or subvert Trump’s policies, particularly on immigration and surveillance.

“As Donald Trump does what he does, the greatest political power is in the cities and towns across America,” ACLU National Political Director Faiz Shakir told the Guardian. “Because constitutionally, cities have sovereignty rights unto their own.”
