UJP Activist: 99% Spring Action Training




We're at a crossroads as a country. In recent years, millions have lost their
jobs, homes have been foreclosed, and an unconscionable number of children live
in poverty. We have to stand up to the people who caused of all this and
confront the rampant greed and deliberate manipulation of our democracy and our
economy by a tiny minority in the 1%.

Inspired by Occupy Wall Street and the fight for workers in Madison, Wisconsin,
the 99% will rise up this spring. In the span of just one week, from April 9-15,
100,000 people will be 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.

We'll gather for trainings in homes, community centers, places of worship,
campuses, and public spaces nationwide to learn how to join together in the work
of reclaiming our country through sustained non-violent action.

Will you rise with us and join a 99% Spring action training? 

See a list of Boston area training events [1] to be held between April 11 and
April 14, and sign up for a training this week [2].

not responsible for the content or programming of the trainings or for the
planning or organization of any specific actions. The 99% Spring is a
collaborative effort between many organizations to train over 100,000 Americans
in the basics of nonviolent direct action—not an electoral campaign.
