Join us on January 14 for a day of workshops for people new to social and political action and for those upgrading their skills. We'll have a full day of sessions in strategic action planning, media, community outreach, messaging, peace-keeping, tactical design, legal observing, Know Your Rights, non-violent direct action, and more.
Concurrent skills sessions will be available all day. Gain practical ideas for effective dissent and target messaging within a non-violent framework. Support and implementation of the workshops comes from a variety of Portland-area communities and issue advocacy groups promoting Immigrant and racial justice, gender rights, fair housing, healthcare-for-all, and climate action.
Organizations will be tabling throughout the day. Childcare is provided; RSVP to reserve a spot. Please bring a sack lunch.
