This will be a discussion with and for federal employees who are concerned about their rights as citizens and about their roles in the workplace under the new administration.

Through discussions with experts and an interactive action planning session, attendees will:

  1. learn more about their rights as a private citizen and in the workplace
  2. strategize about how to build solidarities in the workplace and
  3. build a local network across agencies.

Takoma Park Mobilization will sponsor another of these workshops in the coming months and if you are on the waitlist, you will be registered for the next workshop.

The speakers are Sarah Starrett and Maria Stephan, a senior policy fellow at the U.S. Institute of Peace and co-author of the award-winning book Why Civil Resistance Works: The Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Conflict (Columbia University Press, 2011).

All workshop participants will come to an agreement at the workshop about the level of confidentiality participants prefer.
