PeoplesHub espouses critical race theory-aligned aims, such as “Dismantling the Global Far Right” through its offering of online trainings and workshops. 4


Trainings and Workshops

Examples of trainings and workshops that PeoplesHub has offered in the past include a course on opposing supposed “COVID denialism,” a workshop on how to counter critics of critical race theory and transgender surgery, a course on “cultivating indigenous African cosmologies” to combat “ableism,” and a clinic covering “Marxism for Activists and Organizers.” 5

Organizations that have used PeoplesHub’s trainings and workshops include the AFL-CIO, Allied Media Conference, Post-Landfill Action Network, Humanity United, Laundromat Project, Creative Wildfire, Third Wave Fund, Borealis Philanthropy, Palestine Legal, National Women’s Law Center, Center for Cultural Power, and Rouge Climate. 6


PeoplesHub offers an eight-month Arts and Social Justice Fellowship to aligned activists in which participants partake in a digital residency, network with other fellows, and engage in the organization’s trainings workshops. 7


In 2023, PeoplesHub published a digital magazine highlighting its organizational accomplishments as well as its fellows’ art, poetry, and projects in development. One feature describes PeoplesHub fellow Sharif Zakout’s play, a two-act musical set in San Fransisco about the harms and limits of liberalism. 8
