This Thursday, 5/18 from 3-6pm, our Local will be hosting a direct action training at the University Friends Meeting House (just off campus at 4001 9th Ave NE) []. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about a number of topics, including:

  • Types of direct actions
  • Using direct action strategically
  • Effective non-violent direct action
  • Legal rights during a direct action
  • Safety planning
  • Direct action roles
  • And more!

A lawyer from the National Lawyer’s Guild will be joining via phone to provide information about your legal rights as a participant in direct actions. We’ll also brainstorm and plan strategic direct actions our Local can take in the coming weeks to continue fighting for student workers negatively impacted by the Trump administration. We hope you can make it! Feel free to email with any questions. Light refreshments will be provided.
