Trainings

Now more than ever we need local solutions that foster community resilience and prosperity. Nonviolent action campaigns centered in spirit can fortify us for the long-haul while building up the capacity and skills we need to win. 

That's why we're excited to announce a training series EQAT is co-sponsoring with POWER and Training for Change. As we're ramping up for our spring walk all over PECO's footprint, we'll be hosting trainings on nonviolent civil disobedience, strategic action planning, and a deeper dive into action roles. This is an offering not only to strengthen the skills of our campaign and base, but also for the wider movement for community self-determination and justice in our region.

This training series is for all who are interested in taking bold and grounded action for justice in our communities.
