Message from your host, Janette D.: This Spring We Rise!
"The people united can never be defeated!" Across America, during the week of April 9, people from many organizations and communities will gather together to learn more about what happened to our economy, learn more about the history of non-violent direct action, and make plans for how to use that knowledge to take action on grassroots campaigns to win change. History is calling; its time to step up!
Join us in Downtown Carson City on Monday night, April 9th, for our community's spring training event that will include introductions, a video, materials, and discussions about how we can work together to improve our country. We welcome people from all towns and cities surrounding Carson City. FYI: The Reno-Sparks community is having an event as well on Saturday & Sunday, April 14 & 15 with more details at: http://moveon.org/event/99spring/128315

MoveOn.org Civic Action is hosting the online event registration process but is not responsible for the content or programming of the trainings or for the planning or organization of any specific actions. The 99% Spring is a collaborative effort between many organizations to train over 100,000 Americans in the basics of nonviolent direct action—not an electoral campaign.
