Igniting a Rights Movement for Communities and Nature!
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.
