Class description

Nonviolent direct action training is essential to movement building. It provides a basic foundation about the tenets and history of nonviolence, nonviolent action, community building, understanding the legal process, democratic decision-making using consensus, creating affinity groups for mutual support, and reflections for discernment about whether to engage in civil disobedience/risking arrest. Activities will be participatory and will include a role play. Everyone is welcome and participants are expected to stay for the entire 8 hours.

This workshop is capped at 35 people.
