Our Community Organizing for Deep Democracy Retreat is one of our most rewarding events.
We host activists from across the country for a weekend-long intensive training on building a democracy movement in the United States. The workshop is interactive and highly informative and participants walk away with tools for organizing in their communities, and great connections with other organizers who share their passion and focus on bringing down Corporate Personhood.
In the past this event has been largely publicized to participants outside Humboldt County and our audience has been people who do not live here. Our members participate by hosting attendees, helping us prepare food and attending the Saturday evening networking potluck. We always figured that our locals had ample access to our local trainings and our materials.
This year we're doing this a little bit differently. We're throwing the doors open to Humboldt residents, and we're offering a deal on registration.
The special cost for this full weekend training (with all local/organic/homecooked meals provided) is only $100-$150 sliding scale for local residents. Regular registration is $200-$400.
We've also changed our training to provide more of a "training for trainers" emphasis - the new agenda is designed to give participants the skills needed to do presentations on Corporate Personhood themselves, and to become leaders in the Move to Amend campaign to pass a Constitutional Amendment to Abolish Corporate Personhood.
This kind of training is not something we offer at any other time in Humboldt County!
The event is coming right up and we only have six more spots available!

You can register online right now. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Also we still need a few more housing spots for guests from out of town. Please contact us if you have a couch or spare bed to offer for the weekend - even if you yourself cannot attend!
We're really looking forward to this event, and we're so excited to be able to offer this new opportunity to our local folks. We hope you take us up on it!
Spots are very limited so sign up today
