Direct Action Training
Wednesday 4/25Potluck Supper 5:30 – 6:30
Training 6:30 – 9:00Struggles for justice have intensified this year as our communities face an all-out assault on our rights. Growing ranks of activists getting organized to fight back find increased repression targeting protest and free speech. If ever a moment called us to bold action it is now.
Direct action can be a powerful tool to focus our collective power. In this highly interactive workshop we’ll explore the basics of how to plan organize and implement a safe, effective direct action. topics covered will include de-escalating behaviors in tense situations, quick decision-making, roles and responsibilities and more.
This training is offered in support of our movements for justice in this region by Occupy RVA and the Wayside Center for Popular Education.
Trainer: Jeff Winder
