Are you still looking for a great summer activity? Here is one that will be fun and build your advocacy skills.
Our close colleague, the Backbone Campaign, is organizing a “Localize This! Action Camp” which will teach campaign strategy and creative, non-violent tactics and direct action. All sorts of useful skills from puppet making to rappelling and blockades will be taught. The event is being held in Washington State from August 8 to 14 with the main workshops from the 9th to the 13th. The camp is inexpensive, indeed, no one will be turned away and they are suggesting a $25 donation per day or $100-300 sliding scale for the week. There will be on-site camping and Backbone Campaign will be providing food.
