About The Event

Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) Training

February 10th, 2018, 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM

Brattleboro Food Co-op community room

TRAINERS: Cate Woolner & Carol Lewis of Sugar Shack Alliance

Participating in this training does not mean you plan to risk arrest while involved in a non-violent direct action. It is important for all of us in the environmental, social justice, racial & gender equality, peace, and democracy movements to be well-versed in non- violence. In addition to risking arrest, we need to consider all the roles necessary to make our efforts successful, including being a support person, a legal, police or media liaison.

Workshop Goals Include: 

- To understand and become inspired by the spirit and history of non-violent direct action

- To prepare for participation in non-violent action that may be necessary as time goes on

- To deepen connections and build stronger community among activists in the region  To explore the role of privilege and power in risking arrest

- To consider joining an existing affinity group, or creating a new one

The workshop is free. Though not required, a donation of $5-$20 would be most appreciated as our way of thanking our volunteer trainers and covering the cost of materials.

- Bagels, muffins, scones, croissants, fruit, coffee & tea will be available throughout the day. For lunch, bring your own, eat in the Co-op Café, or elsewhere in town.

- There are only 25 places, and some have already been taken. So it is advisable to register early.

- Contact: Tim 802.869.2141 or

Registering means you plan to attend barring an emergency and that you commit to the entire day.
