While this training is specifically focused on environmentalism and civil disobedience, the lessons learned could be easily applied to any social justice movement. We encourage anyone who is interested in growing their strategies for the movement for trans liberation to attend!
From Louisiana Bucket Brigade:
Grounded in our partnership with RISE St. James and the legacy of civil disobedience they carry, we will be hosting two civil disobedience trainings, one on Sunday Sept. 8th and the other on Sunday Sept. 22th.
The time is up for the oil, gas and chemical industry; we are working toward a transition from fossil fuels and dirty plastics. Every flood that hits New Orleans and our state, every inch of disappearing coast is evidence of why it's time to move on from these polluting industries.
Extinction Rebellion (XR) NOLA will do a presentation on the extent of the climate and ecological crisis at 5 pm, one hour before the training. This includes concrete ways to organize, ways which have been proven successful in recent history. XR Nola be there at 4:30pm to set up and chat if you're interested in getting more involved.
We hope you can join us as we prepare and mobilize to take our future back. And oil industry hacks (this means you, "issues managers!") the tide is turning - you should be worried!
