Started in Buffalo, NY in 2016, the 2nd edition of this traveling festival of music, community, and activism takes place in the historic artist haven of Provincetown, MA.
Activist University was launched in 2016 by Care2, the world's largest social network for good, with over 40 million members starting petitions, supporting each other's campaigns and sharing stories that inspire action.
Activist University is a collaborative 60-minute session guided by Care2 campaigners designed to bring activists together and provide a step-by-step guide to grassroots organizing focusing on using local activism to make a difference in your City.

When the Pilgrims landed here in 1620 they were just the first wave to seek refuge on these remote shores. Those who followed were, however, much less puritanical. Fringe writers and artists began making a summer haven in Provincetown a century ago, and in later years the gay and lesbian community turned this sandy outpost into the hottest gay vacation destination in the Northeast. Commercial St, the main waterfront drag, has a nonstop carnival atmosphere. While the action throbs from the center of town, Provincetown also has quiet dunes where you can walk without another soul in sight and an untamed coastline with glorious beaches.
