The CELDF Democracy School: Igniting a Rights Movement for Communities and Nature!

Hosted by the Colorado Community Rights Network and East Boulder County United

Democracy School is a stimulating and illuminating virtual course that teaches residents and activists an empowering new approach about how to reframe exhausting and often discouraging single-issue work – such as opposing fracking, overdevelopment, and pesticides, or advocating for worker rights, housing access, and protecting water – in a way that we can confront corporate control and government interference on a powerful front: the people’s right of local self-governance and Nature’s rights.

Educating your community is one of the most powerful steps toward change you can make. Here are the details for our upcoming virtual Democracy School event:

Each Democracy School is a 4 part session. Please register once for access to all 4 dates.

Democracy School is open to anyone – but we recommend finding a school hosted within your community to create meaningful dialogue and networking around the issues that are most important to you and your community.
