For Movement Strategists

We take the long-view, informing resistance strategies by focusing on interrelated anti-democratic movements, trends, and leaders—not just in periods of immediate increased threat, but also when right-wing organizing is less visible.

Our research is accountable to social justice movements and communities most directly targeted by these threats.

PRA works behind the scenes to leverage our expertise by engaging directly with movement strategists. We offer trainings for social justice actors on how to identify and combat threats from the Right. PRA consults with community groups directly targeted by far-right actors in need of rapid response trainings; movement-facing field builders requesting research to support communities in security and organizing responses; and media-savvy digital organizers in need of political education to shape their large-scale organizing efforts.

Through these interventions, PRA:

  1. Improves the efficacy of social justice strategies by helping groups identify and assess potential threats,
  2. Actively co-develops strategies to block antidemocratic forces, and
  3. Creates frameworks that support long-term power-building for a more robust democratic movement.
