Come join us for a free 2 hour training about keeping you and yours safe while protesting for a better world. We’ll cover identifying police tactics, action preparation, and talk about those strange and illustrious medics you see roaming about with red crosses.
These are the first of what we hope will be several such workshops in coming weeks. If you have a location or group you believe would be interested in hosting another, please contact us here or at firstname.lastname@example.org
