Sunday, November 6, 2016 from noon-5pm
Portland is full of key players in the struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline. We are hosting a training for groups (not individuals) who are interested in organizing local #NoDAPL solidarity actions. Register for the training at https://actionnetwork.org/events/nodapl-solidarity-actions-group-training ABOUT YOU Please come in a group. A group does not need to be any kind of formal organization. It can be you and your friends or you and your family or your coworkers or fellow students or church group or chess club or step squad or really any assemblage of people with whom you have affinity. It also CAN be you and people from your formal organization if you happen to belong to one. We ask that groups be made up of at least 3 people, and encourage much larger groups to attend as well. We also ask that, regardless of the size of your group, *at least* 3 people from your group attend the training. There will be a lot of different information given and you might have to split up at points to absorb all of it. We will be checking at the door that you have registered and are showing up with your group. Please do not register if you do not plan to attend with other members of your group. ABOUT THE TRAINING We will introduce basic and common non-violent direct action strategies and tactics. We'll review some of the agencies and players in the Dakota Access Pipeline project and discuss how we can target them locally. We will also review pertinent legal information to engaging in direct action and address how you and your group can keep each other safe while challenging the powers that back DAPL. Finally, we'll touch on local struggles against fossil fuel infrastructure here that is currently transporting Bakken Crude Oil (the same oil the DAPL is being built to accommodate) in the Pacific Northwest. **The training IS NOT a space to come try to find a ride to North Dakota or ask if anyone can take your donations out there. We are trying to engage folks who explicitly know they cannot go to Standing Rock anytime soon and want to take action here and now.** https://www.facebook.com/events/325125727865887/

Please note that we will be meeting in the same location as our last few meetings, but the organization has changed their name from the Center for Inter-Cultural Organizing to Unite Oregon. https://www.facebook.com/events/309734332723346/
