Direct Action & Community Defense Trainings – March & April
Our capacity to resist is directly correlated to our capacity to self-organize on a massive scale. Join us for a training for people who want to develop their ability to take strong collective action in committed groups of people.
ABOUT THE TRAINING
We will introduce the basic and common non-violent direct action strategies and tactics. We will also review pertinent legal information to engaging in direct action and address how you and your group can keep each other safe while challenging those in power.
This training lasts from 10am-7pm and will thoroughly prepare your group to take strategic & tactically powerful autonomous action.
Please come in a group. A group does not need to be any kind of formal organization. It can be you and your friends or you and your family or your coworkers or fellow students or church group or chess club or step squad or really any assemblage of people with whom you have affinity. It also CAN be you and people from your formal organization if you happen to belong to one. We ask that groups be made up of at least 3 people, and encourage much larger groups to attend as well. If your group doesn’t already have a name, now’s your chance to thing of something awesome to call yourselves.
We also ask that regardless of the size of your group, *at least* 3 people from your group attend the training. There will be a lot of different information given and you might have to split up at points to absorb it all.
We will be checking at the door that you have registered and are showing up with your group. Please do not register if you do not plant to attend with other members of your group.
We will share the location with groups who RSVP.
