HUDDLE This Saturday at 3 p.m.

from: https://www.facebook.com/events/366553370410589/

In follow-up to the Women’s March in Redding CA, which had over 300 participants on Saturday January 21st, organizers are having a HUDDLE on Saturday, February 11, 2017 from 3-5 p.m. in the Community Room of Redding Public Library, 1100 Parkview, Redding CA.

This event will employ facilitated break-out groups of 8-10 that include an opportunity to meet your fellow concerned citizens, learn about specific action steps you can take here and now for the causes you care about, and an introduction to the groups and movements in need of your talents and skills.

PLEASE NOTE: Maximum room capacity of the Library’s Community Room is 100. A “first come, first admitted” policy will apply. However, organizers CAN and WILL, however, host additional “Information for Activists” gatherings like this on an on-going basis, as long as the demand to do so exists (which, we hope, will continue for some time to come).

Indivisible

They will be discussing Indivisible, A Practical Guide for Resisting the Trump Agenda – a guide wherein former congressional staffers reveal best practices for making Congress listen. Download and read ahead.

Non-violent Protest

The Women’s March follows the principles of Kingian nonviolence, which are defined as follows:

  • Principle 1: Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people. It is a positive force confronting the forces of injustice and utilizes the righteous indignation and spiritual, emotional, and intellectual capabilities of people as the vital force for change and reconciliation.
  • Principle 2: The Beloved Community is the framework for the future. The nonviolent concept is an overall effort to achieve a reconciled world by raising the level of relationships among people to a height where justice prevails and persons attain their full human potential.
  • Principle 3: Attack forces of evil, not persons doing evil. The nonviolent approach helps one analyze the fundamental conditions, policies and practices of the conflict rather than reacting to one’s opponents or their personalities.
  • Principle 4: Accept suffering without retaliation for the sake of the cause to achieve our goal. Self-chosen suffering is redemptive and helps the movement grow in a spiritual as well as a humanitarian dimension. The moral authority of voluntary suffering for a goal communicates the concern to one’s own friends and community as well as to the opponent.
  • Principle 5: Avoid internal violence of the spirit as well as external physical violence. The nonviolent attitude permeates all aspects of the campaign. It provides a mirror type reflection of the reality of the condition to one’s opponent and the community at large. Specific activities must be designed to maintain a high level of spirit and morale during a nonviolent campaign.

Organizers and participants include representatives from The Peace Initiative Shasta County (PISC), ACLU, KKRN, Democratic Central Committee, Young Democrats, Berniecrats of Shasta County, Shasta County Citizens for Democracy, Whole Earth and Watershed Festival, Redding Climate Coalition, Lunch WithLa Malfa, Euphrates Institutes, Salon Progressive Response to Donald Trump Political Party, Native Roots Network and more.
