Are you ready to take action against extreme pollution with?
Join us for this awesome training from special guest and long-time Headwaters Defense volunteer, Jackson!

Come to an interactive training on the theory and strategy of non-violent action. We will talk about the history of direct action in grassroots movements and discuss the theory of non-violent resistance. 
We will train participants in a variety of direct action tactics and decide which ones could be applied in our efforts to defend clean water and community health in Fayette County. 
We will talk about the various roles necessary in any direct action scenario and will provide training for those who wish to fill vital support roles such as Action Media, Legal, Medical, Worker and Community Liaisons and Direct Support. 

We are growing a mass movement to defend the land and water and protect our communities. We know we need a diversity of tactics and we know that everyone has a role to play. 

Come learn, share, and connect to help us build a stronger movement!

These principles can be useful for other causes as well!
