The Spring of 99% nonviolent direct action trainings happened all over our country last week. The goal was to train 100,00 people across the United States on nonviolent direct action. Locally in DC,on Sunday, April 15th, people gathered at the AFL-CIO for the DC Jobs with Justice and Respect DC Spring of 99% training. Some of the training attendees hailed from organizations like the Democratic Socialist of America (DSA), the New Organizing Institute and Pride at work. Participants discussed their personal stories of how they are the 99%. They also saw a short film on the economy, and learned how to do hassle lines for nonviolent direct action. Attendees felt energized and wanted to learn more about getting involved with DC Jobs with Justice and the Respect DC campaign.
