6 workshops on “Nonviolent Grassroots Organizing” Saturday mornings

Case study: About 50 years ago when my cousin was 16 years old, she wanted to make herself a dress, so she bought some expensive fabric but did not want to spend the time or effort buying or using a pattern for her sewing project. Without a pattern, she just started cutting. Of course, she ruined the fabric and did not end up with a dress.

People who want to accomplish political or societal changes often make the mistake my cousin did. They start doing things without the necessary planning or skills.

I’m offering practical workshops in “Nonviolent Grassroots Organizing” in order to help you make progress on whatever issues you care about.

Not enough people signed up for the series of 6 workshops on “Nonviolent Grassroots Organizing” planned for Thursday daytimes at Olympia Senior Center, so that facility canceled the series.

Instead I am scheduling the series for 6 consecutive Saturday mornings (10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon from Sat. Sept 29 through Sat. Nov. 3, 2018) in the living room of one participant at a convenient location on Olympia’s west side, just north of West Harrison.

The Saturday morning schedule will allow more persons to participate.  Also, without having to pay for the Olympia Senior Center’s overhead, I can offer these for FREE. I donate my time anyway for everything I do, but without having to pay for space, low-income people can take these workshops. If you want, you may choose to reimburse me $15 to cover the cost of printing the many handouts, but that is optional for those who can easily afford it.

We’ll enjoy the nice space in our West Olympia participant’s home. We will not take time for refreshments during the workshops, but you may make your own plans for lunch elsewhere after we end at 12:00 noon.

All 6 sessions will start promptly at 10:00 a.m. Please plan to attend all 6 workshops on their scheduled dates (Sept. 29, Oct. 5-13-20-27, and Nov. 3). In case you must miss any, you may arrange with me for a make-up session later at my home at a convenient location in Lacey (also on a bus line).

If you want to take this workshop series – or if you have any questions – please contact me at (360) 491-9093 or glenanderson@integra.net. I will provide the address for anyone who registers. We can accommodate up to 15 persons, but I’m expecting fewer than that.

I am attaching this flyer that summarizes the series of workshops:
