November 5, 2017 –
On this anniversary of the presidential election, the use of non-violent direct action (NVDA) to resist corporate greed, environmental destruction, racial injustice, and all violations of human rights appears more essential than ever. NVDA is more than risking arrest. Come explore all the myriad ways we can be engaged in working together for meaningful change.
Join us for this timely presentation about the historical context and core principles of NVDA as it has leveraged change in the US and around the world, highlighted by local, national, and international examples. We will engage in community conversation about how we can apply NVDA to our own work around the pressing issues of environmental justice, whitesupremacy, electoral politics, and more.
