Cosecha Crowd Safety Training (Early April)

Date: 
Wed, Apr 3, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:30pm

As we build up to the big May 1st March, Cosecha GR needs people, especially allies who can be trained as marshals for actions that Cosecha GR organizes. The role of marshals is to keep people safe from violence, the violence of racist individuals, hate groups and police.

The trainings last 2.5 hours and include a lot of role playing, so that people can be better prepared to deal with a number of circumstances we may face.

Feel free to email Alex with any questions about this training (alexk2444@gmail.com).
