Join us for a 5 day intensive program for campus organizers of the We Divest Campaign–those with campaigns already running and those hoping to get one launched in the 2012-2013 school year. The Summer Institute will include:
- Extensive campaign development coaching
- Grassroots organizing skill building
- Media & Messaging trainings
- Anti-oppression analysis workshops
- Non-violent direct action planning
- Historical overview of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions
- Relationship building with activists on campuses nationwide
- Strategy sessions with BDS movement leaders
- Two tracks for existing and new campaigns
Plus: fun in a summer camp-like environment!
Cost: $100 registration fee (the cost of 4 nights/5 days room and board is subsidized by AFSC and JVP). Each participant is responsible for their own travel costs. Limited travel scholarships are available, if you need assistance for a grant from your school or to apply for credit (academic, internship, etc), we are happy to help with that process!
