This year we are excited to partner with the Backbone Campaign to host their annual LocalizeThis! Action Camp on Vashon Island. The action camp is part incubator for organizers and part book camp for activists, focusing on fomenting change through creative, social and community driven art.
Localize This! is YOUR destination to explore Creative Direct Action Tactics and Effective Organizing Strategies. The 2016 Localize This! Action Camp comes early this year on June 21st-27th on Vashon Island, WA.
What started out as training ground for a community's fight to stop a transnational corporation's environmental destruction has turned into an annual celebration (2016 will be our 8th year) of some of the best our movements for justice have to offer.
Localize This! is the longest running annual Action Camp in the U.S. Backbone invites you to:
- Lock arms with passionate action-oriented change agents from across the country.
- Dive into a week of intensive training, strategics, learning, and sharing victory stories with some of the movements most effective organizers.
- Take action before everything we value or hold as sacred is extracted, exploited, and extinguished.
"Kudos to Backbone Campaign for fomenting creative change-making with gusto! The Localize This! Action Camp is a real-life version of the courage, heart, and audacity I wrote about in The Dandelion Insurrection." - Rivera Sun, author of The Dandelion Insurrection
One participant had this to say about Localize This! Action Camp:
"What Backbone, Circle Pines, the trainers, and people at camp have created, should get funded, blossom and be replicated everywhere."
