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 near you, in New Haven on April 14th, and led by 350CT organizers.

Here are the details:
WHAT: New Haven 99% Spring Training
WHEN: April 14th, 9 AM – 5 PM
WHERE: Location TBD, New Haven, CT (Sign up, and we’ll send you an email once we know more)

The training will include strategies to address the climate crisis, but it won’t be the only focus – we’ll also have an opportunity to learn from other dynamic movements who are working against all forms of injustice and inequality that are trashing our communities and planet.
I’ve had the privilege of helping coordinate lots of large-scale trainings before, including the two weeks of trainings each night before our Keystone XL White House sit-ins, but this project is on a scale we’ve never attempted. Helping develop the curriculum for 99% Spring has been exciting and challenging and I’m looking forward to sharing it with everyone this spring.
One thing you should know about these events: No protest experience is needed! This is the training where you can bring your grandchild or grandparent (and everyone in between).
I hope as many of us as possible can seize this opportunity to make our movement bigger, bolder, and deeper.
With love and perseverance,
