Direct Action in the Shalefields
Organizing and Action Training
Saturday, October 22
Pittsburgh Friends’ Meeting House 4836 Ellsworth Ave.
Across the Marcellus Shale Region people are organizing, mobilizing and taking action in unprecedented ways to confront gas companies and their plans to destroy our communities and environment. Grassroots groups are meeting together, pressuring political leaders, confronting gas executives, and increasingly, taking to the streets to stop hydrofracking in the Marcellus Shale.
As we gear up to escalate our resistance to gas drilling we want to learn some of the key strategies and tactics that other social movements have used to organize successful actions. The Shadbush Environmental Justice Collective is hosting a direct action organizing training to help prepare ourselves and our allies from communities around the region to organize successful, dynamic, and empowering actions.
Join us on Saturday, October 22 from 10 am to 4 pm for a Direct Action Organizing Training. We’ll explore the history philosophy of direct action, strategic considerations, messaging, organizing, logistics and action planning.
Lunch will be provided so if you’re planning on coming please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how much food to order!
