Stand Together! Another Day of Action workshops
Hyung Nam, HCAO Education Committee Chair, is leading a second workshop with this coalition of local issue advocacy groups, with a focus on health care for strategic advocacy. HCAO is a sponsor again and has an opportunity to table. We need volunteers to table, as there will be many people eager to learn about ways they can plug into organizations to bring about change.
Join us on Saturday, February 25, for a day of workshops for people new to social and political action and for those who want to upgrade their skills. Experienced activists will present a full day of sessions in Non-Violent Direct Action, Legal Basics/Know Your Rights, Digital Security, Peacekeeping, Non-Violent Communication, Positive Energy for Resistance, Photography for Actions, Strategic Planning, 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.
