Do you want to become more active in making social and political change? Are you planning on attending the Counter Inaugural or Women’s March? Are you looking to come together with like minded community? Nonviolent direct action is a way that ordinary people throughout US history and around the world have fought for rights, freedom, and justice. Join us for an interactive, experiential dive into some of the history and practices in this 3 hour workshop. Our December workshop was very well attended and several participants said it was one of the best trainings they had ever been to. Don’t miss this one!
