The Tennessee Student Solidarity Network will hold a “Justice School” in July to teach individuals as young as 15 how to organize protests and campaigns for “progressive movements.”

The group’s program will be held at an undisclosed location every Sunday from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. beginning July 7 through August 18.

Registration for the program, which is marketed toward individuals aged 15 to 25, closes on June 25.

“Young people need more spaces where we can develop our organizing and campaign skills, and build crucial solidarity with workers,” the Justice School’s registration form says. “If we want to win the local and national fights against gentrification, exploitative bosses, free speech restrictions, and police brutality: we must be grounded in a winning strategy based on the lessons of our history and the needs of our people.”
