Help Activists Get to Camp!
We are excited to welcome Solidarity Brigade members from across the country to Vashon Island, to attend this year's 10th Annual Artful Activism Localize This! Action Camp on Vashon Island in September.
Each year we have to plan our Action Camp before we've raised the money. While this is a bit of a risk, we operate on faith that you, our supporters, will chip in to help support these important trainings. It costs about $250/Camper to cover the hard costs of each trainee at Camp. We don't turn away anyone for lack of funds.
Will you contribute so that activists from frontline communities can attend this gathering? With your help, both new and seasoned activists will learn how to do light projections, build and deploy props that get attention for a cause, kayak in a flotilla, nurture their squad for the long haul of building a resilient movement, learn best practices for direct action, how to negotiate with police, create action videos, recruit volunteers, facilitate conflict, and more.
With your help Backbone Campaign can grow our network of autonomous change agents, harmonized by a shared theory of change, tactical expertise, and organizing strategies for delivering victories. Together, we are building a nation that prioritizes protecting each other, our communities and the planet by creating a new society that honors that some things are just NOT FOR SALE.
Thanks for stepping up -- so that together we can rise up!
