Adopt-a-CPC! Protesting 101
June 24 @ 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
1) Information Session: First, we will sit down and your NOW officer will give you tips on protesting, including the basics of following the law, how to respond if an anti tries to engage with you, and how to communicate with law enforcement, if needed. You will also be able to sign up for a specific CPC of your choice and hopefully meet/choose a protest buddy. This discussion should take no longer than 40 minutes.
2) In-Person Protest Training: AFTERWARDS, we will head over to South Austin Pregnancy Resource Center (SAPRC), which is within walking distance of Radio, and protest as the 2nd part of your training.
Those interested in hosting a protest sponsored by NOW must attend both an informational meeting run by a NOW officer AND do the group protest in order to be eligible. Whether you complete both parts of the training with us this day at Radio and at SAPRC afterwards, or you complete one part on a different occasion, does not matter, as long as you complete both parts of training.
Pledges should also be signed and turned into NOW officer who conducts the training. Those who complete all requirements will be given protest materials including NOW Truth Squad t-shirt(s), NOW informational fans (including Keep Abortion Legal, Stop Fake Clinics, etc.), protest signs, and pamphlets to hand out to interested passersby.
Further details & questions will be addressed during the training. For more information, contact Austin NOW.
