Non-Violent Direct Action Workshop

with Jessica Bell

Jessica is an organizer with the California Food and Justice Coalition, Bay Rising and Direct Action to Stop the War.

Who should attend:

Anyone who knows they want to participate in civil disobedience or are willing to support others as they participate

Anyone who is considering civil disobedience or would like to know more about civil disobedience as practiced by Gandhi and Martin Luther King

Anyone who participates in vigils/demonstrations and would like to learn what to do if confronted by law enforcement

In this interactive, dynamic and fun workshop, you will develop the theoretical and practical skills you need to determine when and how to engage in non-violent direct action to achieve your goals of social change. Specific topics that we will cover include: types of direct action, best practice principles of direct actions, strategic planning so you can determine when direct action should be used, preparing for an action, action roles and dealing with conflict during the action. Participants will also practice designing and role-playing actions.
