    This training has limited space and will build off of previous trainings and workshops that take place over the full two weeks. The primary focus of this 4 day training will be to cover the basics in:

    Blockades: Participants will learn essential skills for occupying space using technical tools and their own bodies with a focus on developing skills that will be useful in their broader activist communities.

    Climbing: Participants will cover basic techniques, equipment, and procedures used by seasoned action climbers. Rope access principles, mechanical devices, and other climbing methods will be introduced. The concepts shared can be adopted by all those who integrate climbing, protest, and resistance. We will practice different scenarios involving banner deployments and aerial blockades.

    7:00PM Resume? Help!: A skillshare & discussion on navigating job applications - SURJ DC

    During this skillshare, members of the SURJ-DC Queer and Trans Working Group will share tips from our experience developing, workshopping, and reviewing resumes to help demystify the process. There is no one “right” way to put together a resume, but there are some best practices and creative strategies we can share to help folks gain confidence in presenting their experiences and skills to employers. As facilitators, we will also invite attendees to share their own experiences and challenges in navigating job applications, particularly specific challenges faced by trans POC who may attend, so that participants can share advice and lessons learned with each other. We acknowledge that our facilitators are white cisgender queer folks, and we do not have the expertise on the specific challenges faced by trans POC and sex workers in the job-seeking process. At the end of the skillshare, we’ll leave time for one-on-one questions and individual workshopping of resumes. Event Goals: The goal of the skillshare will be for participants to leave feeling more supported and confident in constructing their own resumes, and to take away some tips and strategies that are relevant for a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. We will also provide contact information for the lead facilitators so that participants can follow up with questions after the event.
