    Cultivate Resistance! Direct Action Training for Groups


    Our capacity to resist is directly correlated to our capacity to self-organize on a massive scale. We invite you to join us for a training for groups of people who want to develop their ability to take powerful strategic collective action.

    This training will introduce basic non-violent direct action strategies and tactics to groups who are completely new to organizing, and will provide next steps and development to groups who have been working together for a while.

    We ask that you show up in a group; a group does not need to be any kind of formal organization, although it totally CAN be those people. We ask that groups be made up of at least 3 people, and encourage much larger groups to attend as well. If you don't have a group and would like to come as an individual, please register and let us know why you are interested in attending on your own.

    So grab your friends, family, neighbors, activist group, church group, study group, or any group you have affinity with and sign up together!

    This training we will be providing information and training on how to prepare and develop a direct action. We will be sending out a more detailed breakdown of the agenda to folks that sign up.
