Calling all activists and changemakers. Join Greenpeace for the 2018 Action Camp, a six-day, non-violent direct action training and skillshare.
Greenpeace is gearing up for another Action Camp in March of 2018, and we’d love for you to join us!The state of our nation is on high alert, with Trump at the helm. White supremacists, climate deniers, and corporate billionaires are thriving in Washington, while we are left to contend with rampant racism, violence, mass shootings, fires, hurricanes, and floods. The creative, peaceful, diverse solutions and movements that we foster at Action Camp are even more necessary and vital. We need people with skills and courage to gather, who are willing to stand up and speak out, who are willing to work for the liberation of brown and black folks, who love this world and will work tirelessly to protect it and make it a more just and equitable place for all.
Greenpeace is offering a six-day, intensive training to learn and share non-violent direct action skills like climbing, arts & creative resistance, kayaktivism, and blockades. We are looking for people who want to create change in their communities and in the world.
If you are interested in coming together with other activist-minded folks, honoring diversity, and working across difference, please consider joining us from March 3-8, 2018, at Action Camp outside Tampa, Florida. Head here for details on the program and how to apply. Applications will close on January 6, 2018 — don’t miss out!
