The It Takes Roots Alliances (Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, Climate Justice Alliance, Right to the City Alliance, Indigenous Environmental Network), are so excited to announce the It Takes Roots & The Ruckus Society, National Direct Action + Community Resiliency Camp to train up our forces on an array of strategic + tactical & self and community based resilience skills to build across our alliances and prepare to continue to wage visionary opposition for our collective liberation. The camp will take place June 1-5, 2018.
What is an Action Camp?
A Ruckus Action Camp is an intensive 5 day, off the grid, full immersion training space that brings together leaders, organizers and community members from across many of our communities to do a deep dive into direct action skills, theory and practice. The camp seeks to create a space for participants to familiarize and practice and array of tactical skills, share collective community knowledge around strategy and provide opportunities for community members to share, practice and envision together.
Direct Action + Survival Skills – Resiliency in the age of climate disaster
Together with Ruckus, this national camp will be a groundbreaking and first of its kind that seeks to provide in-depth training for our folks in both direct action skills and survival skills. As more and more of our communities are impacted by hurricanes, floods, fires and massive displacement, our need to deepen our capacities to survive amidst climate disaster is critical and move us toward a just transition.
