Humboldt County, CA and The Occidental Arts & Ecology Center in Sonoma County, CA
Are you engaged in issues of economic, environmental or social justice in your community? Seeking to improve your understanding of corporate power and more effective strategies for resistance? Interested in meeting organizers and leaders from across the country and networking to build a stronger democracy movement in the United States? Then you won't want to miss this event. Why do corporate "persons" have more rights than human beings? Community Organizing for Deep Democracy Retreats combine presentation and participation to empower participants with the knowledge, sklls, networks, and tools needed to mobilize grassroots action at the community level. Our workshops draw on a long tradition of popular education in people's movements as we seek to organize to address today's unique challenges. Democracy Unlimited of Humboldt County educates citizens about the illegitimate seizure of our authority to govern ourselves. We design and implement grassroots strategies which exercise democratic power over corporations and governments. We seek to create a truly democratic society by provoking a non-violent popular uprising against corporate rule in Humboldt County that can serve as a model for other communities across the United States. We invite you to join us as we educate, agitate, organize, and strategize to build a grassroots movement for democracy and against corporate rule! Workshop tuition is $250-$400 sliding scale, please contact us regarding scholarships. Includes all meals and lodging (unless you chose to stay in a hotel), does not include travel.
