eating/drinking establishment. On Tuesday, November 8, the
same workshop will be held in the DanaBuilding (in the northeast corner of the diag on U of
M’s central campus), Room 2024 from to in Ann Arbor. The critical vote
on whether or not to continue protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is
coming up in less than two weeks! Now is the time to make sure Representative
Ehlers does the right thing.
Outreach Director of the Alaska Coalition, Shoren
Brown, is coming to town to conduct this
great training session. Shoren has been a grassroots organizer for over a
decade and is an expert on Alaskan wilderness. This is an amazing opportunity
to learn about the Arctic, basic and
advanced grassroots organizing skills applicable to any issues, and how to make
sure the Refuge stays protected for the long-term. Skills trainings will
include Campaign Strategy, Media Messaging and Outreach, and Grassroots Organizing Tools.
Coalition is a broad group of conservation,
sporting, religious, labor, and student organizations that work together to
wild lands through coalition and grassroots organizing.
