Monday, October 23, 2017 at 06:00 PMCCPC Office in Lakewood, OH
Do you want to learn from experienced trainers how to hold your MOCs accountable in their offices, in public appearances, in “tele-town halls,” and at real townhalls??
One of the most effective resistance tactics is to directly confront politicians and PUT THEM ON THE SPOT in public. But that can be intimidating. Training and practice helps overcome that anxiety.
Experienced trainers from longstanding New York-based organizations Housing Works and the Center for Popular Democracy have trained thousands, and they will be conducting a special session for grassroots activists in Cleveland.
We need more people with the skill and will to directly hold our MOCs accountable wherever they choose to hide. This is an incredible opportunity for us to receive training from those who have been successfully organizing direct actions for many years. Don't miss out on the chance to increase your ability to make an impact!
Hosted by OFA - Ohio
