This workshop offers an introduction to the history of nonviolent direct action and its implementation as well as examples of intersectionality within our community and movements, affinity groups and their formation, consensus decision making, and a discussion on self-care and community care. This workshop is meant to help prepare people to participate in actions, plan their own actions or just to have a deeper understanding of direct action.
The training will be held on Wednesday, November 20th from 6-930pm at the First Unitarian Church in New Bedford located at 71 8th street in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
There is a suggested donation of $5-$100 for attending this workshop. But no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the training or any childcare/accessibility needs.
