Nonviolent Direct Action Trainings

Join the local and regional climate justice movement in defeating fossil fuel infrastructure! Learn techniques of nonviolence from experienced trainers and form Affinity Groups with your neighbors and allies. No prior experience necessary & free and open to the public. You do not need to know if you are prepared to risk arrest to attend; the training will support you in considering all of your options.

Trainings are free but we do ask for donations to cover printed materials and some for trainers’ time and gas. Usual donation is $5 – $20 per person, but no one will ever be turned away from a lack of funds. All are welcome!


There will be a NVDA training on 9/23/17 at the Holyoke Public Library.  This training is offered through the Sojourner Truth School for Social Change Leadership.

The training will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.  The trainers will be Cate Woolner and Mary Link.

This training is considered a prerequisite for the Peacekeeper training which will be held on November 11th.

Please REGISTER NOW.  More information is available on the Truth School website.
