Join us for a 5 day intensive program for campus organizers of the We Divest Campaign–those with campaigns already running and those hoping to get one launched in the 2012-2013 school year. The Summer Institute will include:

  • Extensive campaign development coaching
  • Grassroots organizing skill building
  • Media & Messaging trainings
  • Anti-oppression analysis workshops
  • Non-violent direct action planning
  • Historical overview of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions
  • Relationship building with activists on campuses nationwide
  • Strategy sessions with BDS movement leaders
  • Two tracks for existing and new campaigns

Plus: fun in a summer camp-like environment!

Applications are now being accepted. For application materials or more details contact mmerryman-lotze@afsc.org or jbing@afsc.org

Cost: $100 registration fee (the cost of 4 nights/5 days room and board is subsidized by AFSC and JVP). Each participant is responsible for their own travel costs.
