Hey fellow activists and organizers,

Like many, we enjoyed last week's burst of summer. It felt like a trip to
FL without the airfare. It's also like enjoying a delicious meal on the
Titanic just before it hits the iceberg. I hope some climate change
activists join us for these April events...

*SKILLSHARE: PUBLIC SPEAKING* <http://www.sojust.org/events/54462792/>
*Monday, April 2, 6:00-8:30PM*
The NonProfit Center by South Station

Does the thought of speaking in public make you weak in the knees? Are you
looking for ways to bolster your public speaking skills and wow your
audiences? This introductory public speaking training focuses on building
the basic technical skills necessary to clearly transmit information from
the speaker to an audience. Specific skills include word choice, eye
contact, volume, vocalized pauses, and body language.  Using a small-group
format for practical training followed by a discussion debrief from each
exercise, the training is designed to allow all participants the
opportunity to practice their speaking in an environment that is
supportive, attentive, and can provide useful feedback.

*SoJust's 99% Spring: NON-VIOLENT DIRECT ACTION TRAINING<http://goog_2142349291>
*Wednesday, April 11, 6:00-9:00PM*
The NonProfit Center by South Station

Join with 100,000 other Americans across the country to learn how to tell
the story of what happened to our economy, the history of non-violent
direct action, and how to use that knowledge to fight the corrupting
influence of big money on our political system. With this 3-hour training
you'll be prepared to join dozens of actions taking place in Boston this
spring, including a Tax Day Action and a May Day Action.
