Event: 99% Spring Action Training

Following the notoriety of the Occupy movement last year, MoveOn.org is hosting an online registration for local training sessions about the fundamentals of non-violent direct action.

The goal of the 99% Spring Action Training is to organize 100,000 activists during the week beginning April 9 “trained to tell the story of what happened to our economy, learn the history of non-violent direct action, and use that knowledge to take action on our own campaigns to win change.” As for telling the story of what caused the economic downturn, it bears repeating that “Wall Street Couldn’t Have Done It Alone.”

As of March 29, there are approximately 900 training sessions taking place across the country. In the Metroplex, there are four events scheduled.
