Join the 99% Spring in Berkeley
The U.S. Climate movement is doing big things.
In Congress, the fight against fossil fuel subsidies is reaching a full boil, even as we defend our victory against Keystone XL. We're connecting the dots between the extreme weather sweeping the country and climate change. And if that wasn't enough, natural gas fracking and other extreme energy projects seem to be popping up in communities everywhere.
I have a lot of faith in our ability to accomplish great things together, but if we want to tackle everything that's on our plate, our movement needs to get bigger, bolder, and more collaborative. This April, we have a chance to expand the skills we need to win as part of a project called the 99% Spring. 350.org has joined this huge effort that is bringing together over 60 organizations from labor unions to environmentalists, to domestic workers, immigrant rights groups, and the peace movement -- all to train 100,000 people in Nonviolent Direct Action tactics and strategy this Spring.
One of the 700 nonviolent direct action trainings is happening in Berkeley on April 14th, and led by May, a local 350.org organizer.
