One of the many reasons that working on the Vanguard S.O.S. campaign keeps us feeling excited and empowered is that we know that we're doing this work alongside many partners, near and far.
Locally, EQAT had the privilege of collaborating with local land justice groups to offer a training on some of the roles that make a successful nonviolent direct action. While gathered under tall trees in a beautiful park in South Philadelphia, we focused on learning about four action roles: action lead, police liaison, marshal, and grounding anchor. It was a powerful training, with lots of roleplaying, discussion, and cross-group connection.
