Non-Violent Direct Action Training

  • The Mix Coworking 9125 Diceman Drive Dallas, TX, 75218 United States (map)

The Dallas Peace and Justice Center is very exciited to host Greenpeace to offer Non-Violent Direct Action Training. We just had a very successful Direct Action Training recently with the Texas Drought Project who trained 50 motivated activists.

In our next series of trainings, we are proud to present Greenpeace for a full weekend of Non-Violent Direct Action Training.

In these difficult times, using the power of our voices and our bodies to fight for what we believe in is more important than ever.

Greenpeace has been using non-violent action to resist tyranical bullies since 1971.

Our mission: Greenpeace is the leading independent campaigning organization that uses peaceful protest and creative communication to expose global environmental problems and promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future.
