Host a 99% Spring Action Training


PLEASE NOTE:

If you sign up to host an event after Wednesday, April 11, we are not able to "match" you with a trainer or training team. There is a host prep call on Thursday, April 12 to get all the tips you'll need to run a successful event. Once you set up your event, check your host guide for more details about the prep call.

Thanks for signing up to coordinate a training for the 99% Spring. At hundreds of local trainings, we'll learn how to tell the story of what happened to our economy, learn the history of non-violent direct action, and make plans for how to use that knowledge to take action on our own campaigns to win change.

The trainings will take place the week of April 9-15. Sign up to host a training now. We'll make sure you get support and guidance to coordinate a training and have everything you need to help build the 99% movement in your community.

Host Ground Rules

We have tried to provide all the information you will need on our website (more information is available after you post your event). We will work hard to review all questions that are emailed to us and add answers to the FAQ (frequently asked questions) pages, so please check those pages to see if your question has been answered before you email us.

By creating an event, you are agreeing to serve as a coordinator of the event. Your responsibilities include:

  • Finding a venue for your training and arranging that all the necessary materials are brought to the event (you can ask other participants and partners for help).
  • Working with other local leaders and organizations as partners in setting up the event.
  • Contacting and communicating with the people who participate in your event. We will encourage attendees not to attend an event where the host has not confirmed their participation.
  • Either working with a trainer (or several) that will be assigned to your event to make sure everything goes smoothly or getting trained to lead the event yourself.
  • Filing a quick post-meeting report.

I agree to the hosting ground rules for this event. *
