From XR- Madison:
I want to extend an invitation for you to join members of Extinction Rebellion Madison for at least one of several 4-hour trainings in Nonviolent Direct Action (NVDA) leading up to the September 20th Global Climate Strike.
We’re hosting NVDA trainings on three separate dates (9/10, 9/11, & 9/14) that we’re hoping other groups will feel welcome and interested in attending to more meaningfully prepare for a broad range of possibilities on September 20th.
Coming to any of these trainings doesn’t mean you have to be a member of Extinction Rebellion now or in the future, and it doesn’t mean that you plan on doing civil disobedience on the day of the global climate strike. It does mean that you want to learn more about nonviolent direct action, and consider what types of outcomes are possible using this strategy.
I hope you will join us for one or multiple of these trainings – while the content will be largely the same at each, you will approach subsequent trainings with different knowledge and a different mindset, so we’d love to see you at several if possible.
One note on the 4-hour time commitment – going into an action underprepared or underinformed is dangerous, not only to the cause and the movement, but to all participants as well. We feel strongly that it is our responsibility as organizers to set standards of required preparation prior to any action, and hope that the different dates and times allow you to secure the time available to join us.
