The climate crisis is escalating – and so are we. This fall, through our Blame Wall Street campaign, we’re taking escalated actions on banks, insurance companies, asset managers, and pension funds to hold them accountable for their role in the climate crisis.
Actions involving civil disobedience require an increased level of planning and coordination, and we want to ensure everyone has the resources they need to do it well. This training is a great resource for new civil disobedience practitioners and those who are looking to brush up on their skills. Sign up now to join us!
Our trainer will be Sam Corbin. Sam is a facilitator, organizer, and action coordinator from New York City. Her commitment is to supporting the development of resilient, courageous, and joyful people and movements. She is the co-founder of Movement Netlab and The New York Action Network and has worked with local, national, and international organizations for over 17 years developing campaigns and coordinating creative direct actions. Some of those include the Ruckus Society, The Other 98%, Greenpeace, Rainforest Action Network, Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Sandy, and the Climate Justice Alliance.
If you’re interested in planning an action involving civil disobedience, we also recommend working with an action coach, who can support your group individually. Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to get connected with an action coach!
As the climate crisis escalates, and as Wall Street continues to funnel money to the fossil fuels that are burning the planet, it’s important that we escalate too – both our tactics and our skills.
