Community Organizing: Direct Action Training!

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

City:

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.

Rapid Response to ICE Training

Date: 
Thu, Jun 15, 2017 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

This is our next Rapid Response to ICE training that is being hosted by the Grand Rapids Immigrant Solidarity Network. The training is for people who want to take action in support of the undocumented community.

This is a training specifically for what kinds of tactics we can use to respond to ICE raids and how we can mobilize people quickly to 1) prevent ICE from arresting, detaining and deporting people and 2) provide support (mutual aid) for the family members impacted by ICE raids.

MPDN June Meeting

City:

Come help build the defense against the rising tide of hate crimes and white supremacism. We are planning trainings in immigration defense, street medic training, and more to come. We discuss local protests and events that are related to our organization's goals. If you are looking to take direct action, learn, educate, design things like flyers, posters, buttons, etc., we have plenty of work to do. We are building a network of organizations to stop the deportations, keep people in their homes, dismantle the institutions of racism, homophobia, and so on.

Join us!
