Practice designing inventive actions, and share ideas for creative, strategic tactics. High-school aged youth are welcome!

We've designed the training to:

- learn from local groups that have used creative actions to win on their issue

- practice generating tactics that frame our story and get the media's attention

- generate positive and powerful support from like-minded folks attending and those passive allies watching from the sidelines

- explore what emotional blocks keep folks from trying tactics outside of their norm

The training team is set - join Matthew ArmsteadRyan Leitner and Max Ray-Riek. They'll share stories and explore theory about how to create new, innoviative actions that get attention and move issues forward!
