Preparing for the Election
October 27, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
As we prepare for election season, an unprecedented period between Election Day and Inauguration Day, Congregation Action Network is offering two crucial trainings in non-violent civil action and de-escalation for clergy and people of faith.
We encourage you to join these trainings and to share the information with your congregations, communities, and loved ones.
Register for one or both trainings here. When you register we ask that you put Congregation Action Network (CAN) in the organization section on the registration form.
Wednesday: Nonviolent Civil Action for People of Faith 2.0: October 28th, 7-9pm ET
Join Graie Hagans, Vision Praxis Director at Bend the Arc for a nonviolence training for faith leaders where we will explore disciplined nonviolence for street mobilizations. In this training we will address how clergy and faith leaders can show up as safely as possible in actions.
Thursday: De-escalation Best Practices: October 29th, 6-7:15 p.m. ET.
To do de-escalation well, you’re going to need to practice. Come to this call to get what you need to practice on and how to keep things cool and calm at the polls when people are trying to be antagonizing. Learn how to keep your faith at the center of your response to chaos and how to help center those around you.
All trainings are co-hosted by Count Every Vote, Bend The Arc, and Faith in Public Life.
