Training & Action Support

We provide tailored trainings for community groups upon request, in order to develop communities' skills and support them to achieve their goals.  Our trainings can range from 3 hrs to several days, from nonviolence theory and direct action planning to hands-on tactics. 

Our action support can vary from helping brainstorm creative, strategic actions, to providing gear, action coordination and action teams.

We also have representatives available to speak at community events.
