Tactics That Tickle: Laughing All the Way to the Win

Summary available

Thank you for joining the New Tactics online community for this dialogue on Tactics That Tickle: Laughing All the Way to the Win. Yes, we are working to change serious problems, but that doesn’t mean this work should not use humor as a tool to accomplish our objective!  Humor is a powerful nonviolent tactic that has the ability to prevent and counter activist burnout, engage more supporters, and increase the chance of getting media attention.  It can give you an opportunity to put your opponent in a dilemma – no matter what he does, he has lost.  In this dialogue, practitioners shared advice and resources on using humor, and many examples to inspire you.
