Dear 350 WA network,
Tomorrow we are holding the first webinar in the Agents of Change training series, and I’m writing to remind you to register if you want to get trained up for direct action! We have quite a few people already signed up from outside of Seattle– for example, I’m working on putting together an Eastside affinity group– and would love to have more!
Agents of Change: Direct Action Training Series will teach you the core skills you need to plan and participate in safe, strategic, and impactful actions. The series includes three webinars, an in-person Action Lab, and an action. We’re supporting all participants in forming affinity groups to take action with. The training is geared towards folks who are involved in movement work and who want to skill up for direct action — whether that next step is taking part in an action for the first time, taking bigger risks at actions, or planning an action. If this is you, we hope you’ll join us and invite you to register here.
Happy to answer any questions!

Thank you, Alice, for sharing this invitation for the Direct Action training to the 350 WA Network! 🌲 I hope lots of 350 groups are able to participate. ❤

I’m really excited for this chance to train up together and build deep and lasting affinity groups so we can organize and act for real change together. Maybe one day we will even coordinate a statewide direct action!

Hello 350 WA network!

I’m Alice, with the Pledge of Resistance team at 350 Seattle. I’m excited to announce we’re putting on a training series on direct action this August-September and am reaching out to invite you all to send a group to attend. It’s called Agents of Change: Direct Action Training Series; we will be teaching participants the core skills they need to plan and participate in safe, strategic, and impactful direct actions. 

We’re inviting people to attend in teams because our goal is for people to strengthen their existing relationships and form affinity groups. The training is geared towards people who are already involved in organizing and/or active in their communities and who want to get ready to engage in direct action. If some 350 WA groups can attend, it will be awesome to have people skilling up and getting action-ready across the state. If people don’t have a team, though, they can come as individuals too.

Are any of you interested in sending a group to attend the training together?

Agents of Change includes a kickoff event, three webinars, an Action Lab where we’ll teach concrete skills like de-escalation, and an action that we all do together.  You are all invited to the kickoff event, which will be Monday, August 2nd from 6-7:30pm at Jefferson Park. It’ll be a fun event with food, socializing, and storytelling from people who have participated in some incredible direct actions. There’s no commitment attached to attending– you can just come hang out, eat food, and hear more about the training — we only ask that folks planning to attend RSVP here so we can get a headcount for food! 

You can sign up and read more about the training at

I’m happy to answer any questions and hope your team will consider joining us!
