The smoke makes it clearer than ever: something’s gotta change…truly, deeply, and permanently.
In the coming months, facing intersecting crises in climate, racial justice, pandemic, and democracy, we’ll need to be nimble and powerful to help make that change. Please learn with us, so that we can be effective and wise too.
With amazing lineups in our Pledge of Reistance Take to the Streets trainings, our Racial Justice is Climate Justice series, and the 350.org Solidarity School, we’ve got you covered: the full list is below. Trainings are being added regularly, please check our trainings page!

There is always a possibility of being arrested, and it’s important to understand your rights and have a legal and jail support plan. We will share some basic information about the process of arrest as well as how to support those who may be arrested. We will highlight things to think about before, during, and after actions.
