Vision to Action Workshop

Interactive training for activists. Led by Dion Lerman, a longtime Philadelphia activist. Peace is not the absence of conflict, but resolving the sources of the conflicts. Violence, and the threat of violence, including war, is the tool that is maintains all oppression and injustice. We must act against violence, personal or institutional, and reclaim and assert our individual power to create a society in which we want to live.

We will discuss the history of movements .Gain perspective and prepare for the work ahead with an understanding of how we ended up "here". We  are investing  time with each other  to get a handle on how to do that.  Be a positive  influence.  Help others consider being active. We need everyone...to create an effective mass movement- a true People's Lobby. That includes reaching out and participating in  "Courageous Conversations'. Donations to cover expenses welcome

Thanks to our Volunteers in Philly

Thanks to all of our volunteers for your passion and dedication.  We organizers were so impressed with your peace loving activism!    So many showed up to be a part of this and did so much good... we made an impression in the news in many places.

We are  now exploring partnering with www.act20network.org.  This non profit is all about freedom of assembly.  So are we.  We see a great need to continue the struggle for democracy.   This means the People demonstrating and making their voices heard.

Whenever there are demonstrations it is important to support them with openness.  Our belief is that all voices need to be aired.  We believe in the longstanding process of respect for each and all. Not corporations over the people.

We learned a LOT from all of you.

 We found that our only time slot in the morning was not nearly enough.  We had to send people to the NVDA training at 7PM. and some never really connected with us.

We discovered that people needed more than a suggestions to 'stick together' and will be finding ways to make that happen more clear  going forward. 

We heard that many want to create a similar group. . and we want to share what we have learned hear with you all.
