People Rise Up! A Community Invitation to Action

Saturday, Jan 21, 2pm – 5pm Community Building, 35 W. Main

Save the date & invite your friends! Peace & Justice Action League of Spokane and our partners are organizing our grassroots power action festival to say from day 1: We are paying attention, we are reaching out, we are mobilizing, we are turning up the heat! We believe in peace, human rights, respect & equality, racial justice, gender justice, economic justice — for ALL. And we’re not backing down, we’re surging up from our roots!

We feel the WHY of our commitment to take action — Come sharpen your skills for the WHAT and the HOW!

This FREE family-friendly, kid-welcoming event will feature:

* Tips for Action – Experienced activist and leaders will share guidelines for effectiveness in actions like calling elected officials, difficult conversations, assertiveness and setting boundaries, bystander intervention, public speaking, recruiting & motivating others, planning collective actions, and lots more so we can all work at the edges of our comfort zones.
