2017 Localize This! Action Camp

RSVP to let us know you're interested in coming to action campLocalize This! is YOUR destination to explore Creative Direct Action Tactics and Effective Organizing Strategies

The 2017 Localize This! Action Camp is Tuesday July 25th through August 1st, on Vashon Island, WA (across the water from Seattle).

  • Lock arms with passionate action-oriented change agents from across the country.

  • Dive into a week of intensive training, strategizing, learning, and sharing of victory stories with some of the movements most effective organizers.

  • Take action before everything we value or hold as sacred is extracted, exploited, and extinguished.

What started out as training ground for a community's fight to stop a transnational corporation's environmental destruction has turned into an annual celebration of some of the best our movements for justice have to offer (2017 is our 9th year).

Action Camp workshops are primarily based on skill-building with concentrations on artful activism, non-violent direct action tactics (like body, technical, aerial, and tripod blockades), community organizing, climbing, kayaktivism, anti-oppression practices, forming affinity groups and designing creative actions that build pressure on decision-makers and create liberated spaces. Participants explore social change strategies that earn media and build power for campaigns focusing on efforts outside of the traditional channels of redress beyond the realm of electoral politics.

Cost: Sliding-Scale with limited scholarships available.

We're excited to learn and skill-up together. RSVP TODAY!
