We are reaching out to you because you are the person/people that will bring the change we need. Represent yourself,your loved ones and your community! Come and take part...If you are a newbie or weathered activist it does not matter this workshop/training is for everyone.
Protests and marches alone will not bring us the changes that we seek.
While the need for direct action is clear, organizing a successful
march or a direct action should never be a goal in and of itself.
Direct actions are tools that we use as part of a larger organizing
campaign that gets us to a larger goal.
