Are you feeling the urgency of climate chaos and ready to move beyond pleading with elected officials who are in the pockets of the fossil fuel industry? Well, 350.org is subsidizing a special opportunity for you to learn about nonviolent direct action, or make your campaign more strategic if you are already using this approach.

During our four classes together online, you will learn how to:

* Choose a demand that’s ambitious but winnable.

* Identify your target and where they are vulnerable.

* Develop creative tactics to make your actions effective, press-worthy, and fun.

* Escalate over time in a way that builds pressure and your power.

In this class, you will find support and a chance to strengthen your courage and leadership muscles. Each session will include a mixture of lesson and discussion. Recordings of the class sessions will be available in case you can’t make every one, along with additional materials and suggested homework.

The next round of this course will begin October 23 and meet four Mondays, ending November 13. It meets from 7:00-9:00 pm EST.

The regular price for this course is $129 each, but 350.org is generously subsidizing its members, so you have access to a very special rate of $49 for an individual, or $129 for a group of five or more!!

No one turned away for lack of funds – contact Matt@350.org if you need additional financial support to participate.
