180 federal employees sign up for 'civil disobedience' class

Published in Blog on July 17, 2017 by Convention Of States Project

A large group of federal employees have signed up to participate in a workshop on civil disobedience in the President Trump era.

According to a Washington Post report, 180 federal employees have signed up for a workshop featuring expert advice on workers’ rights and expressing civil disobedience. 

Dozens of federal workers have reportedly attended a support group for civil servants that serves as a forum for discussing opposition to the Trump administration.

Some federal employees have already expressed defiance against the Trump administration following a gag order, which has since been lifted, that restricted the Environmental Protection Agency and departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services from contacting the press or posting about the administration on social media.

After the ban, reports emerged the National Park Services and Badlands National Park Twitter accounts were defying Trump and his gag order with tweets that appeared contrary to the Trump administration's views on climate change and immigration.
