Join us for a FREE Hammer Museum Community Gathering at The Wiltern, "Stand Up and Fight Back: Tactics and Strategies for Effective Creative Activism."
Do you want to get more active and skilled at making social and political change?
People around the world have used civil disobedience through non-violent direct action to fight for rights, freedom, and justice. This free 3-hour workshop, taught by two of the nation’s leading nonviolent practitioners, will explore strategies and best on-the-ground practices for successful nonviolent action.
-Identify what makes an action or movement effective
-Explore the history of nonviolent struggles
-Learn legal and safety skills, and how to de-escalate conflict
Reverend James Lawson, a leading theoretician and tactician of nonviolence within the Civil Rights Movement who was instrumental in training Martin Luther King Jr. and thousands of US civil rights activists, will join Nadine Bloch, training director for Beautiful Trouble, an organization that promotes creative strategic activism.
