Beyond Marches & Rallies: Nonviolent Direct Action Training

Practice designing inventive actions, and share ideas for creative, strategic tactics. High-school aged youth are welcome!

We've designed the training to:
- learn from local groups that have used creative actions to win on their issue
- practice generating tactics that frame our story and get the media's attention
- generate positive and powerful support from like minded folks attending and those passive allies watching from the sidelines
- explore what emotional blocks keep folks from trying tactics outside of their norm

The training team is set - join Matthew Armstead, Ryan Leitner and Max Ray-Riek. They'll share stories and explore theory about how to create new, innoviative actions that get attention and move issues forward!
