Interested in incorporating civil disobedience into your actions? Join us for a training with Sam Corbin, an experienced practitioner of non-violent direct action. We'll go over the roles and resources needed to host actions that include the possibility of civil disobedience.

If a group is new to civil disobedience, they should additionally consider working 1-1 action coach, which we're happy to set up. You can get connected to an action coach by emailing Amy Gray (

This is the second of our Blame Wall Street training series. The first training is on Action Planning 101, where we'll go over general action and event planning roles, responsibilities, and how-tos. This training will go over what kind of additional roles, responsibilities, and resources are needed for action where civil disobedience could be a possibility.

About Blame Wall Street: Extreme heat. Wildfires. Hurricanes. Flooding. Wall Street is fueling extreme weather events around the globe by funneling billions of dollars into the fossil fuel industry and deforestation.

This fall, we're organizing a wave of actions laying the blame at their feet and getting them to STOP funding fossil fuels and climate destruction.
