Better Future Project hosted a full-day 99% Spring training on April 14th in Somerville, with space provided by First Church Somerville. Another full-day training was scheduled at SEIU 1199 in Dorchester. A large coalition of groups across the metro area have been working together to make the 99% Spring trainings a big success, and we decided to add this training so more people could attend a full-day session. The people are rising – working together to build a future worthy of our deepest values and highest hopes.
For some, this training was an introduction to nonviolent direct action, for others it was a next step in their movement leadership development, and for others it was a sorely needed respite from the action — a time to re-energize in the presence of new movement partners.
