Nonviolent Direct Action Training

  • The Democracy Center 45 Mount Auburn Street Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

The fight to stop the compressor station requires the use of many different tactics. As we continue to fight Enbridge in the courts, we want to be prepared for any and all outcomes. Folks from The FANG Collective will be facilitating a training on the topic on Nonviolent Direct Action (NVDA) for us. If you’re interested in learning more about NVDA, we encourage you to attend this training.

If you want to learn more about NVDA (Nonviolent Direct Action), please join us! Taking part in direct action doesn't necessarily mean risking arrest. We encourage everyone to join us for the training, as it is a useful and important tactic to learn about.


The FANG Collective, who has a wealth of experience in nonviolent resistance, will be facilitating the training. The FANG Collective works to build, support and escalate nonviolent resistance to the natural gas industry while supporting other movements for justice. During this training, they will provide a thorough overview of NVDA and what it might look like to participate in a direct action.
