Ruckus Trains at GA Peace & Justice Coalition’s “Be the Change” Gathering

Ruckus trainer Isaac M. headed out to Americus, GA May 15-17, 2009, to give direct action trainings to Georgia Peace & Justice Coalition’s youth at their Be The Change gathering.

Isaac was able to provide Intro to Nonviolent Direct Action training, as well as step in to cover a Media training on the fly (thanks Isaac!), and spent the whole weekend with the youth.  Here’s what he had to say:

"During the weekend May 15-17 I was privileged to take part in the “Be the Change Youth Convergence” at Koinonia Farm in Americus GA, hosted by the Americans Friends Service Committee and the Georgia Peace and Justice Coalition. Over 50 participants took part in a weekend of dedicated to leadership development, movement building, and establishing long term relationships. The weekend ended with the a Non Violent Direct Action training that worked to further push the capacity of all participants and diversify their knowledge and understanding of NVDA."
