Join us for a 4-part series of trainings on nonviolent direct action (NVDA). 

All trainings will take place in person, and were developed by experienced trainers from organizations who are part of the 350 Network Council (which SanDiego350 belongs to) with the goal of grounding us in shared principles and empowering us to take bolder and more strategic action. 

Each two-hour training includes a video (with CART closed captioning), slides, resources, and interactive activities. You may sign up for all four trainings, or just one or two (note – you need to sign up for each training individually, links to all four are below). 

We will cover the following topics:
