*SUMMER ACTIVIST TRAINING CAMP*

The Review will be mass-enrolling all manner of young Bible thumpers, opinionated neocons, Evelyn Waugh-reading Tories and just generic close-minded conservative types to ensure that this thing goes off with a decisive hitch.

BUILD OUR ORGANIZING SKILLS
Are only three or four people doing all the work for your group?
Do you feel like your group isn’t accomplishing anything?
Are your meetings completely boring?
Then come obtain the skills to running a kick-ass student and youth
activist group that creates concrete, lasting change with skills
trainings led by experienced trainers.

STRENGTHEN THE MOVEMENT
Only by confronting the legacy of racism and other forms of
oppression and their manifestations within the environmental movement
today, can we become truly effective agents for protecting the
environment and creating lasting change. The process begins with a
two day anti-racism training, continued with forums for discussing
and planning anti-oppression work in our organizing.

BUILD OUR COLLECTIVE POWER
By networking with other progressive student groups and youth
organizations from around the country sharing resources and
coordinating events, actions, and campaigns together!

FIGHT THE CONSTRUCTION OF I-69
The people of Indiana stand to lose more than 5,000 acres of family
farms,1,100 acres of forests, and 500 acres of wetlands to I-69, the
NAFTA superhighway. I-69 has been stalled for more than 15 years by
grassroots opposition, but, due to its importance to free trade
planning in the Western Hemisphere, the push for its construction has
been strongly renewed by corporate interests. In response, this
summer people from across the country are gathering in Indiana to
stop this superhighway project, so as to block the devastating
effects it is sure to have locally and globally.

It sounds even more compelling on their web site:

This workshop will go over how to strategically choose, plan, and execute a campaign so that you can accomplish what you set out to do. Topics covered include: Choosing a campaign, filling out the campaign strategy chart, and drafting a timeline.

When launching a campaign on your campus or in your community, think of your starting point as point “A” and where you want to be, your goal, as point “Z.” Your strategy is the path you walk to get you from A to Z, and your tactics are the individual acts, or steps, you take along that path.
