Organized by ROSC and co-sponsored by Peace Action Maine, 350 Maine, and Maine Students for Climate Justice

Corner of Gray and State
Free and open to the public, this preparation session on nonviolent direct action will cover the basics of planning strategic actions, legal issues, and the nonviolent tradition. As the War Resisters League puts it, "Nonviolent Direct Action is powerful. There are many dramatic images of nonviolent action; indeed, the ability to dramatize an issue is one of the strengths of nonviolence. However, this drama doesn't just happen. It gestates – in groups...of activists, in discussions, in training sessions, in reflecting on previous experiences, in planning, in experimenting, in making contacts." Resources for Organizing and Social Change will organize the workshop; Peace Action Maine, 350 Maine, and Maine Students for Climate Justice are co-sponsors.
