imageTuesday, July 25th through Monday, August 1st, on beautiful Vashon Island, WA (across from Seattle).

Localize This! Action Camp is a place for veteran and novice change agents to deepen their skills and experience effecting social change.

Autonomous grassroots activists and members of progressive organizations like you come together to build and evolve their campaigns, workshop more compelling actions, and inspire, support, and challenge one another to become more effective and impactful organizers.

At action camp you'll meet workshop leaders and trainers

  • who inspire us
  • are at the forefront of resistance and solutionary organizing
  • are evolving new approaches to change-making
  • have developed hard-won insights
  • and are whom Backbone looks to as social movement mentors.

Please submit your application by Saturday June 24th. We will contact you about acceptance to camp before June 30th.

It only takes about 10-15 minutes to apply.

For more information email or call 805-776-3882.

To foster solidarity, growth, learning, and community among participants we are prioritizing applicants that can come for the duration of camp. You may still apply if you think you might only be able to come for part of camp, we may decide to make some select workshops, presentations, or certain days more broadly available to the larger public.
