Our friends at the Better Future Project (who sponsored Climate Summer last July and will be doing so again this July) are running this training.
First Church Somerville, Davis Square, Somerville
14 Apr , 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM
The people are rising. Let's work together to build a future worthy of our deepest values and highest hopes. For some, this training will be an introduction to nonviolent direct action, for others it will be a next step in their movement leadership development, and for others it will be a sorely needed respite from the action – a time to reenergize in the presence of new movement partners. Wherever you find yourself on this continuum, we invite you to join us on April 14th. Better Future Project (BetterFutureProject.org) is excited to host a full-day training in conjunction with First Church Somerville. The 99% Spring Trainings will gather across America, 100,000 strong, in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets to train ourselves in non-violent action and join together in the work of reclaiming our country. History is calling; it’s time to step up.
