Sat, Oct 28, 2017 - 12:00pm to 4:00pm

Are you new to activism but want to get involved? Do you have experience in activism but want to build further on your efforts?

Direct action is an important tool in building a movement that will actually win. From suffragettes and sit-down strikes, to the civil rights movement, to ActUp and Occupy, direct actions have helped propel social movements to success.

This training is provided by Michigan People's Campaign and will focus on how to create and conduct effective direct actions, safely and peacefully, in support of making change.

As we see an increase in hate crimes and attacks against immigrants, Muslims, and other vulnerable populations in our communities, many of us have asked ourselves, “What would or what could I do if I were there?” The good news is that there are skills and techniques that you can learn and practice to keep others safe. You don’t have to be passive. Our 4 hour Basic Bystander Training will show you how to respond.
