WV Citizen Action is a proud affiliate of People’s Action, a national organization fighting for community over greed, justice over racism, and people and planet over big corporations.
We’re excited to invite YOU to be a part of the Second Annual People’s Action Convention with us! The application to apply for a chance to attend with WV CAG staff, board members, and supporters is live now.
Why should you apply? Here are three of our top reasons:
- People! This event will bring together about 1,000 people from grassroots groups from all around the country — rural, urban, and everything in between. Some of these groups campaign for issues and mobilize voters on a truly massive scale. It’s probably one of the most racially and economically diverse rooms you will ever stand in. Just making friends and hearing other people’s strategies is enough of a reason to go.
- Training! Here’s a sample of what’s on the training agenda for the convention: Political Education, Data Tracking & Technology, Ramping Up our Base-Building, Developing Leadership to Scale, what to do with power when you have power, Campaigns Tools & Planning, and more!
- Direct Action! People’s Action will be organizing a LARGE direct action in D.C. as part of the convention. Ever wanted to do an action on Congress, the White House or a federal agency? Here’s a chance to learn how… along with 1,000 other people who are sure to make it a big splash! Note: Getting arrested is NOT expected or required.
