10:30 AM to 6:30 PM
We're at a crossroads as a country. In recent years, millions have lost their jobs, homes have been foreclosed, and an unconscionable number of children live in poverty. We have to stand up to the people who caused of all this and confront the rampant greed and deliberate manipulation of our democracy and our economy by a tiny minority in the 1%.

This project, called the 99% Spring, is bringing together over 60 organizations from labor unions to environmentalists, to domestic workers, immigrant rights groups, and the peace movement -- all to train 100,000 people in Nonviolent Direct Action tactics and strategy. The environmentalist group, 350.org has also joined this huge effort.
On the week of April 9th to 14th, trainings in the proud history of nonviolent action will be held from coast-to-coast. Itís not just a chance to get skilled up, but also a chance to collaborate to grow our movement in all the ways we need to win.
Inspired by Occupy Wall Street and the fight for workers in Madison, Wisconsin, the 99% will rise up this spring. In the span of just one week, from April 9-15, 100,000 people will be trained to tell the story of what happened to our economy, learn the history of non-violent direct action, and use that knowledge to take action on our own campaigns to win change.
We'll gather for trainings in homes, community centers, places of worship, campuses, and public spaces nationwide to learn how to join together in the work of reclaiming our country through sustained non-violent action.
Will you rise with us and join a 99% Spring action training?
