WHAT: CPC Protest Training
WHEN: Saturday, April 29, 2017 @10am-1pm
WHERE: Radio Cafe, 4204 Manchaca Rd., Austin, TX
Interested in protesting a CPC regularly? It’s super easy and we’ll give you all the resources you need! Required training is simple and consists of 2 parts:
Information Session: 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 30-45 minutes.
In-Person Protest Training: After the information session, trainees will acquire in-person protest experience by protesting a CPC with their NOW officer(s). This Saturday,we will head over to South Austin Pregnancy Resource Center (SAPRC), which is within walking distance of Radio Cafe, and protest as the next part of your training.
[[ Not familiar with Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs), AKA Fake Clinics? Want to know why we’re protesting them?

Those interested in the Adopt-a-CPC program with NOW must attend both an informational meeting run by a NOW officer AND do an in-person training with a NOW officer 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 before starting your regular CPC protests.)
Adopt-a-CPC Pledges should also be signed and turned in to the NOW officer who conducts training. Those who complete training 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.
